Publisher's Synopsis

Meet John Cromer, one of the most unusual heroes in modern fiction. If the minority is always right then John is practically infallible. Growing up disabled and gay in the 1950s, circumstances force John from an early age to develop an intense and vivid internal world. As his character develops, this ability to transcend external circumstance through his own strength of character proves invaluable. Extremely funny and incredibly poignant, this is a major new novel from a writer at the height of his powers.
'I'm not sure I can claim to have taken my place in the human alphabet . . . I'm more like an optional accent or specialised piece of punctuation, hard to track down on the typewriter or computer keyboard . . .'
