The Wisdom of the Jumble Sale

Jackie Hagan

If you pull aside a jam-stained coat and a frilly night gown, you can enter a secret magical world of drunken carebears and narky buses, where clowns eat spam, sugar and lard butties and if you stand outside Netto for long enough a rocketship will come and fly you away. A world where the moon is fat on hot buttered toast, wisdom is biro’d on the back of everyone’s hand and the weird and broken puff out their chests with giggling pride. Come in and meet Cat Diazepam, Bobby Bookshop, Veronica Pop, Mr Pinstripe and their friends and find out who brought Bambi’s mum back to life, in this, Jackie Hagan’s collection of adult contemporary folklore.(literaturenorthwest)
