'The satirical English novel of the decade' Observer
From the moment an unemployed City broker is devoured by an escapee from the Zoo, we are embarked upon a dazzling journey through '90s London. A city peopled by a rich and varied cast of characters with intriguingly different backgrounds: from the City, to journalism, the criminal underworld, advertising, music hall and the East End... while lurking in the background is nemesis, in the shape of a hungry lion.
