Nothing is Heavy

Length: 287 pages4 hours


A blackly funny romp of a novel which takes place one Saturday night on a busy junction in Edinburgh’s city centre. Beth who works in a chippy, Amber who dances naked round a pole and George in his monkey suit collide by chance and set in motion a train of events that are breathtakingly dramatic, surreal and hilarious. The strength of this truly original novel is that beneath the thrill-a-minute, fast-paced action, Vicki Jarrett deals with serious issues as the unforgettable characters’ life-crushing backgrounds are slowly revealed and the past catches up with the present.
A singularly unpretentious and progressive novel of crime, drama and comedy, dripping with inner city colour.
— Peter Burnett
