Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Marnie s schizophrenic father has gone missing.Her sister spends her days sitting on the sofa plucking out her eyelashes, one by one.Something has scared away all the neighbourhood cats and Marnie, the copywriter, is at a loss for words.Then Jericho comes back.Is he the playful imaginary companion of her childhood or as seems more likely the misanthropic, possibly homicidal, but undeniably real manifestation of her despair?Whatever he is, Jericho is angry.He doesn t want to be here but in order to be free of the ties that bind him to Marnie, he has to find out what is wrong with her and fix it. An utterly original and hugely imaginative debut, Advice for Strays is a novel about love, loss and a very unusual friendship.
