Product description


A cult in the making. ― * Time Out *

Clever, exciting, funny . . . and, finally, moving. ― * Sunday Times *

A pychological thriller with shades of Memento and The Matrix and the fiction of Mark Danielewski; page-turning, playful and chilling by turns. ― * Guardian *

Fast, sexy, intriguing, intelligent - The Raw Shark Texts is all these and more: a cult waiting to happen, a blockbuster begging to be made. Steven Hall is a truly fantastic storyteller. Investigate, now! -- Toby Litt
