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 grueling yet illuminating depiction of physical disability; and a subversive portrait of twenty-first-century society in all its hypocrisy and absurdity.
