Product description

Review

A gem of a book…hugely entertaining and also quite moving -- Thomas Quinn, Big Issue

Enjoyable -- Ben East, Observer

Wry, deeply moving and literally magical, Chloe Hooper

Amsterdam is consistently playful, witty and light of touch, Times Literary Supplement

A wonderful novel: imaginative, intelligent, empathetic...like a cross between The Corrections and The Slap, Sydney Morning Herald --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
