Often darkish and occasionally chilly, bloody and brutal, it's also packed with pathos, love and humanity.
"As If! is racy, with a speed equivalent to an early Henry Miller, getting you interested in its poetically drawn global, after which lulling you right into a feel of complacency, whilst WHAM, it hits you that this is often no usual novel, anything to be evidenced in either the content material and elegance of writing up to the common subject matters of affection, loss and want which are so brilliantly portrayed during the energetically alive, complicated and richly drawn characters."
