"gives the inner reality of blue-collar life a respect and attention it rarely gets"

This is the first adult novel by James Clammer, who is well regarded as a writer of young adult fiction, and it is an impressive, uncompromising performance. Written in a trenchantly modernist style, like Joyce or Woolf, with thought after thought rolling along comma after comma, it gives the inner reality of blue-collar life a respect and attention it rarely gets.
