Extract

This is the prologue from Surviving Me, a debut novel about two men whose minds become unfit for purpose for very different reasons. The main character is Tom Cleary but this exert is written by his wife. She is a radio presenter for BBC Sussex.

Marilyn is tapping on the glass, beckoning me to come out. My eyes meet hers through the transparent partition.

I shake my head and mouth, ‘Not now.’ She’s not the bright- est button in the box. She continues to gesture, beckoning and wobbling.

When Adam Met Evie – extract intro

Adam is a Canadian celebrity-sportsman who’s fled scandal back home by jumping on a flight to Australia. He pretends to be an “ordinary” tourist, travelling incognito, but he’s just been recognised and is now in a hurry to leave town.

#Spotlight on Fat Boy by Joseph Cobb, including an #Extract ~ Contemporary Dark Comedy set in the West Country

Today I’m pleased to share an extract from Fat Boy by Joseph Cobb. Before I do, here’s what the book is about…

Way out west, in the tumbling greens of England, something’s going down. Two boys attempt an escape from the clutches of their poisonous parents… A good policeman fights to sidestep the corruption that blows like hellfire down his neck… A calamitous filmmaker and her witless lead actor scramble desperately to overcome their mucky pasts and make a Hollywood hit… A trio of nude-nutted nasties thrash their way through the picturesque countryside, collecting debts but finding more than they expected… Then there’s Captain Grubbe: the eminent, manipulative and falsely titled antichrist. He hosts a spectacular annual Christmas party, and this year’s is set to be even more extraordinary than usual.

Fat Boy is a treacherously fictitious rhapsody, taking a tongue-in-cheek look at the best and the worst of humanity and treating it with the disrespect it deserves – love and hate, corruption and extortion, car chases, gunfights and high jinks, all set against the green and pleasant land of the English countryside. It is ludicrous. It is raucous. It is a modern classic.
