Welcome to Bigot Hall, the nightmare family home most people would want to forget, but which Steve Aylett chooses to celebrate. Uncle Burst believes his face is made of pasta; the violent, grill-mouthed Uncle Snapper is confined to a tree house; Uncle Blute is drowned in the lake at the wheel of his car, where he remains perfectly preserved listening to classical music on the radio. Through this happy breed strolls a nameless anti-hero, who is in love with his sister.
All of these characters entwine to create a story fizzing with corrosive energy, with a result that is disconcerting—but great fun.
Steve Aylett was born in 1967. His books include The Crime Studio, Slaughtermatic, and The Inflatable Volunteer.
