Wrong Boy

Wrong Boy

Author: Willy Russell Illustrator: 0 Format: eBook Release Date: 11/10/2016

The extraordinary first novel from the internationally acclaimed playwright. Raymond Marks is a normal boy, from a normal family, in a normal northern town. His Dad left home after falling in love with a five-string banjo; his fun-hating Gran believes she should have married Jean-Paul Sartre: 'I could never read his books, but y'could tell from his picture, there was nothing frivolous about Jean-Paul Sartre.' Felonious Uncle Jason and Appalling Aunty Paula are lusting after the satellite dish; frogs are flattened on Failsworth Boulevard; and Sickening Sonia's being sick in the majestic cathedral of words. Raymond Marks is a normal boy, from a normal family, in a normal northern town. Until, on the banks of the Rochdale Canal, the flytrapping craze begins and, for Raymond and his Mam, nothing is ever quite so normal again.
