Mister Roberts

Mister Roberts

Above a small village in Spain, an English costume designer sees a bright shining star lurch abruptly across the sky. On Christmas Day a strong, silent man with blank eyes enters Bar Noche Azul. Only a thirteen year old boy could have guessed that there was any connection between the two.

Reviews

'Ridiculously entertaining'
<i>The Times</i>
'A deliciously barmy, yet affecting cautionary tale...the considered, pitch-perfect prose of a talented novelist who also happens to have a wildly perverse imagination, and a store of beautifully delivered one-liners.'
<i>Scotsman</i>
Among the very few comedians to write fiction which can be taken seriously as literature . . . It's also extremely funny.
<i>Independent on Sunday</i>
Brains, wit and welcome absurdity...there is also a surprising amount of warmth
<i>Guardian</i>
'Full of inventive comedy'
<i>Herald</i>
Hilariously bonkers
<i> Red </i>
