Summary

Kimberly Clark was born to the sound of cackling witches in 1984. Having moved to London to follow her heart’s dream, the sweet-but-slow Stevie, she soon tires of him and decides to destroy the relationship from within by being as vile as is humanly possible. When this tactic leads to Stevie’s violent death by his own hand, Kimberly’s soul hangs in the balance – will she ultimately spend eternity in the great TopShop in the sky? Or will she be hurtled into an abyss of endless physical torture, sexual humiliation and bad stand-up comedy? This is the story of Kimberly’s redemption, or possibly the story of her damnation: it’s up to you. There are six different endings on offer.

This is a shocking, laugh-out-loud, nightmare-and-nausea-inducing book. It is a wild narrative experiment that recalls taboo-busting writers from William Burroughs to Irvine Welsh to Chuck Palahniuk.
