The compelling début novel from the Booker Prize shortlisted author of The Sisters Brothers In a seedy bar in Hollywood, a whiskey-loving barman is drawn into the nocturnal world of his sociopathic clientele, with their squabbles, delusions, and bizarre acts of violence. In this brilliantly funny portrait of addiction and its consequences, escape offers the only chance of survival. Utterly absorbing and surprisingly tender, Ablutions is a startlingly bold and original début.

Professional reviews

"‘Quite brilliant… a brief, intense and carefully sustained piece of writing about the blurry edges of existence’ GUARDIAN ‘Ablutions has achieved something remarkable’ SCOTSMAN ‘An astonishingly original and blackly comic début novel that echoes the work of cult American writers such as Donald Cooper and Charles Bukowski… this is a darkly poetic look at the dark side of the American Dream.’ BIG ISSUE"
