For fans of Nicholson Baker and Tom McCarthy, this British debut novel is brilliant, comically surreal entertainment about a housesitting gig gone terribly, hilariously wrong. Like Edgar Allen Poe scripting The Odd Couple, or if Kafka’s The Trial had to do with home repair. Waterstones calls it "a black comedy about death, destruction, and interior decoration."
