by Helen Walsh
£8.99   paperback  Canongate (2005)

Brass by Helen Walsh Nineteen-year-old Millie O'Reilly is clever, spiky and adored by men, but feels increasingly trapped. She seeks escape in the hedonistic underbelly of Liverpool, getting off on rough sex & cheap highs. Shockingly candid & brutally poetic, Helen Walsh has created a portrait both of a city and a generation, offering a female perspective on the harsh truth of growing up in today's Britain.

"The most striking coming-of-age story that I have read for a long time ... Helen Walsh is up there with Irvine Welsh in her ability to show what it is that draws people to the extremes of pleasure."
(Natasha Walter, Vogue)
