An off-the-wall and wickedly naughty stocking-filler for Christmas 2005!
Daren King was born in Harlow, Essex. His debut novel, Boxy an Star, was shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award. He has written two other novels for adults, Jim Giraffe and Tom Boler, and a novel for children, Mouse Noses on Toast.
'[King] is an exceptional writer - warm, modern, daring and oozing sweetness and beauty' Independent on Sunday on BOXY AN STAR 'Bole's breathtaking naivety is a source of both humour and of quite striking observations of the Martian-sends-a-postcard home kind, while his inarticulate pain achieves a shocking simplicity verging on the poetic. This is an extraordinary debut' Observer on BOXY AN STAR 'Will have you wheezing with laughter after each increasingly ludicrous turn' I-D on JIM GIRAFFE 'King has one of the most imaginative and unique voices around' Esquire
