Intensely moving, darkly funny and hugely entertaining, Quicksand
focuses on the multifaceted dynamics between the protagonists Aldo
and Liam: lifelong friends, criminal and police officer, muse and
writer. As well as being a compulsively funny work, Quicksand also
offers its reader a profound exploration of fate, suffering and
resilience; a gruelling yet illuminating depiction of physical
disability; and a subversive portrait of twenty-first-century
society in all its hypocrisy and absurdity.
