‘A dystopian black comedy set in a world where “full-sized humans keep mini-humans as pets.” This edgy work of speculative fiction shocks and enthrals with its striking originality.’ – Book Riot, best of 2018

Take Nothing With You
by Patrick Gale

Patrick Gale will be interviewed about his much-anticipated new novel ‘Take Nothing With You’ .

Rich with insight, intuition and humour, Take Nothing with You is a stunning portrayal of boy on the cusp of adulthood, gleaning from those around him both the glories and complexities of what being a grown up can mean.

An only child, Eustace is dealing with his sexuality, insecurities and his parents’ odd and failing marriage. But when he begins to learn the cello, Eustace discovers that making-music brings release from emotional turmoil.
