The Kid

170 pages3 hours


The Kid is an experimental coming of age novel that lifts vernacular from the American Midwest and plants it firmly in modern day London and Bristol, and follows the story of a fifteen year old runaway, searching for a better life away from an abusive, alcoholic father.
He heads west, jumping trains from city to city, until he finally settles up in Bristol and begins to carve out a life for himself in a constantly unforgiving environment.
This unique debut novel is exquisitely crafted, in turns brutal and beautiful, and ultimately undeniably impactful.
The Kid is a book you'll not want to put down and a journey you'll never forget.
