Satsuma Sun-mover was our first publication, subsequently nominated for the Dylan Thomas award.A magical sift through the hoary old chestnuts of the coming-of-age story, Adam Green's first novel charts the oft explored depths of a young man's soul with great wit and imagination. Fresh-faced, underweight and overdressed, Theo Fintwistle embarks on a surreal journey to free mankind from the tyranny of the post-modern condition equipped only with a bizarre shopping list and youthful idealism. Rattling round the universe like a Murray mint in God's pocket lining, Theo encounters a range of weird and wonderful characters who help him in his quest to free a humanity clutching onto unhappiness with fag-stained fingertips. In so doing he puts philosophy in an uncomfortable black chair and quizzes it until it bursts into tears. With brilliant ideas and hilarious writing throughout, this is a fantastic and accomplished debut.
