An excellent collection of dark, funny and bizarre short stories ... brutally, cynically and honestly written ... all in all a lot better than anything David Baddiel could ever manage. - Loaded14 bleak funny pitiless tales ... This is life looked at through the wrong end of a telescope, the vision of Nathaniel West in Miss Lonelyhearts, and to my mind just as good ... Inside every fat git there's a poet trying to get out. Well, he's out. - ObserverSayle is a funny man, and these tales of pensioners-turned-hitmen, mysterious white Fiat Unos, and inveterate hypochondriacs defy you not to smile at the incremental absurdity of ordinary life. - The Sunday TimesA cracking read .. dense with smart ideas, sour observations and loony rants - Independent on SundayBarcelona Plates will put a smile on your face and a chill down your spine - Time OutAlexei Sayle's manner on the page is the same as it is on screen and stage: arch, dessicated and menacing ... 'The Last Woman Killed in the War' is a thrilling and sensitive meditation on history, race and identity; confirming Sayle as a brilliant chronicler of big stories set in small worlds. - The TimesThese stories are eventful, high-energy, unpredictable, implausible yarns, full of swearing, cars, guns and knives, alcohol, violence and mad people. And they re also very funny. - Independent
