Stephen May - Life! Death! Prizes!
Out this week, a cover of Stephen May’s very well received novel Life! Death! Prizes! published by Bloomsbury. It’s a family tale about a 19 year old boy Billy looking after his younger brother Oscar, after the senseless murder of their mother in a bungled street robbery. “By turns bleak, funny and tender” said reviewer Christopher Wakling. “Echoes of JD Salinger and Dave Eggers.” said Monique Roffey.
Great cover design from Greg Heimnimann. The image was shot in Northamptonshire a couple of years ago. A big thanks to Freddie for modelling.
