Mister Roberts

by Alexei Sayle - £9.99  Hodder & Stoughton (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780340961568 | ISBN 10: 0340961562

A bright shining star lurches abruptly across the sky.
 
A strong, silent man with blank eyes enters Bar Noche Azul.
 
A thirteen-year-old boy is the only one who knows there is a connection.
 
Wonderfully inventive, darkly funny and thoughtful, Mister Roberts is both an original coming-of-age story and an unusual take on the corrupting influence of power.

"Among the very few comedians to write fiction which can be taken seriously as literature...It's also extremely funny"
(Independent on Sunday)
"Brains, wit and welcome absurdity...there is also a surprising amount of warmth"
(Guardian)
