Synopsis

'Heady and rambunctious ...Wake up, this book says: in its plot lines, in its humour, in its philosophical underpinnings and political agenda. I'll pay it the highest compliment it knows - this book is a wild thing.' New York Times Book Review Interlaken, Berne, 21st century. Several things happen after the car hits the rock. Tiff ceases to be pregnant. Stephen captures, like, the most wonderful bird - fleet, stealthy, and beautiful - a real "lifer". And the wallcreeper, the wallcreeper says "twee". The Wallcreeper is nothing more than a portrait of marriage, complete with all its requisite highs and lows: drugs, dubstep, small chores, anal sex, eco-terrorism, birding, breeding and feeding.

Staff Choice

The Wallcreeper is the literary equivalent of a knockout punch: one unrelenting arc of brilliance. From the first sentence to the final full stop the reader hurtles through a cacophony of hilarity, sex and birdwatching... a heady combination! Nell Zink's sustained energy and wit are a rare thing, a bell ringing clearly above the literary landscape. A thorough treat. You deserve it!

Drew, Buying Team

 

The most refreshing thing I read last year and one of the funniest too. If an off-the-wall tale of love, sex and birdwatching doesn't sound like your thing, then just take it from me: the razor-sharp writing will allay any fears you might have.
