Sour Grapes

Sour Grapes

£14.99

When the sleepy English village of Broad Bottom hosts its first literary festival, the good, the bad and the ugly of the book world descend upon its leafy lanes. But the villagers are not prepared for the peculiar habits, petty rivalries and unspeakable desires of the authors. And they are certainly not equipped to deal with Wilberforce Selfram, the ghoul-faced pretentious enfant terrible who wreaks havoc wherever he goes. ‘Sour Grapes’ is a hilarious satire of the literary world which takes no prisoners as it skewers authors, agents, publishers and reviewers alike. It is bound to cause a storm when it is published, especially when the literati find caricatures of themselves within its pages.

Out of stock

'Dan Rhodes is a true original' - Hilary Mantel

When the sleepy English village of Green Bottom hosts its first literary festival, the good, the bad and the ugly of the book world descend upon its leafy lanes. But the villagers are not prepared for the peculiar habits, petty rivalries and unspeakable desires of the authors. And they are certainly not equipped to deal with Wilberforce Selfram, the ghoul-faced, ageing enfant terrible who wreaks havoc wherever he goes.

Sour Grapes is a hilarious satire on the literary world which takes no prisoners as it skewers authors, agents, publishers and reviewers alike.
