Synopsis

On an island like no other, populated by writers, the annual Brilliant & Forever Festival is a much anticipated event; its participants a story away from either glory or infamy. This year, three best friends - two human, one alpaca - are chosen to compete, so victory is not only about reward. This is a novel like no other; a wonderful, provocative tussle, a whip-cracking, energetic, laugh-out-loud satire on what we value in culture, and in our lives. And yet, written with exquisite warmth and empathy, it's also a moving exploration of integrity, friendship and belonging. It'll split your sides and break your heart.

Customer Reviews

I loved this book. Have just read it in one sitting with my heart in my mouth. It takes you on a real mental and emotional journey. I know some people will call it 'quirky' and I guess it is, but it's also so much more than that - it's a book with a big heart and a deep soul, full of invention and imagination. I don't often write reviews but was really compelled to with this one. I hope it gets the attention it deserves.
