And This Is True

published by Sceptre (2010)
Once upon a time there was a boy
whose home was a van and whose world was his father.
Be warned: this is not a fairytale.
Although it does contain love,
and most important of all, a kiss.

But you have to be ready for an unpredictable journey through a realm where nothing is black or white.

That, of course, is why you should take the first step.

Reviews & praise

Assured and deftly crafted. Nevis's voice is brilliantly realised: though naive, he has a bright mind, and a perspective on the world that renders even mundane experiences beautifully strange.
