Review

'A stunningly well-written novel. I didn't want it to end. Tense, joyous, terrifying, comic, tender, magic and tragic - just like childhood itself' Willy Russell

Product Description

"I didn’t want it to end. Tense, joyous, terrifying, comic, tender, magic and tragic! Just like childhood itself." Willy Russell


A policeman lies trapped in a Liverpool cellar.


Only two girls know the truth, but they’re too scared to tell.


The nightmare begins in 1970s Liverpool. Rebecca and Debbie are scared of everything. Rebecca’s parents are fighting - will they split up? Will Debbie’s father go to prison - again?


School is frightening with teachers using the cane.

But they’ve learned to fear the police as well so when a nasty policeman chases them and falls into the cellar of a derelict house they become trapped in a terrifying secret.


As the search for the missing policeman begins they find themselves in more trouble than they could ever imagine.


Will they reveal their awful secret when the consequences could destroy their lives?


This dark crime thriller is a real page-turner that you won’t be able to put down. 

Evocative of Liverpool as it really was in the 1970s this suspenseful black comedy will grip you from the start to the end.


Ireland’s Late Show Host, Ryan Tubridy, described Piggy Monk Square as like ‘Misery with two nine-year-olds at the helm.’


If you like Roddy Doyle, John Boyne and Patrick McCabe’s The Butcher Boy, you’ll love Piggy Monk Square.

Praise for Grace M. Jolliffe

‘A stunningly well-written novel. I didn’t want it to end. Tense, joyous, terrifying, comic, tender, magic and tragic – just like childhood itself.’ Willy Russell

‘Piggy Monk Square is unbearably tense and utterly believable. The voice of its young heroine is so beguiling and convincing that you feel that you've met her. The story forces you to share her terrible secret. Like the last piece of a jigsaw puzzle: illuminating and satisfying.’ Frank Cottrell Boyce

‘Nine-year-old Rebecca, chirpy as her nickname, "Sparra", is the lively narrator of this disturbing child's-eye view of 1970s Toxteth, over which the spectres of poverty and police brutality hang... Grown-ups don't listen to the likes of Sparra. The punch leaves you gasping.’ Rachel Hore – The Guardian

‘Capturing the vividness of childhood...a subtle but compulsively readable novel, combining the bittersweet provincial nostalgia of, say, Meera Syal’s Anita and Me, with a dark and subversive parable that has echoes of Whistle Down the Wind.’  Laurence Phelan - Independent On Sunday

'A gripping, intriguing page-turner which bears testimony to the craft of Jolliffe… One of its most appealing facets is the authentic use of language which at times mirrors the first person appeal in Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident Of the Dog in the Night Time. Grace’s Liverpool childhood has helped her create a truly believable character in her book. It’s also laced with some wry scouse humour too.’ Mike Chapple - Daily Post
