Their Lips Talk of Mischief

by Alan Warner - £8.99  Faber & Faber (Faber & Faber Fiction) (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571311286 | ISBN 10: 0571311288

High up in the Conrad Flats that loom bleakly over Acton, two future stars of the literary scene - or so they assume - are hard at work, tapping out words of wit and brilliance between ill-paid jobs writing captions for the Cat Calendar 1985 and blurbs for trashy novels with titles like Brothel of the Vampire.
 
Just twenty-one but already well entrenched in a life eked out on dole payments, pints and dollops of porridge and pasta, Llewellyn and Cunningham don't have it too bad: a pub on the corner, a misdirected parental allowance, and the delightful company of Aoife, Llewellyn's model fiancée, mother of his young baby - and the woman of Cunningham's increasingly vivid dreams.
 
Alan Warner's superb new novel sees the author of Morvern Callar at the top of his game.
