A truly remarkable novel. Uniquely surreal, comic and immensely satisfying. You'll not have met anybody like Luke: ex-rocket scientist, with a failed degree in pillaging. When he wins a warehouse full of traffic cones in a dubious card game, a strange chain of events leads him into an equally dubious 'career', exploiting this improbable asset to earn a living.
Mysteriously enough, no matter how many traffic cones he takes from his warehouse they never seem to run out. Luke is determined to get to the bottom of this, and he embarks on some amateur sleuthing that results in a series of surreal situations, and lands him in a police cell in Germany.
The Worry is a polymorphic journey from the bizarre to the ridiculous that will make you laugh and get you thinking. Fresh, original, unpredictable yet strangely familiar: like its protagonist, it's funny - and great fun.
Not a book to be easily pigeon-holed... unless you have a very odd-shaped pigeon.
