New Head On the Block

(2007)
A novel by

 
In this black satire, Nick Brooke brings a touch of Tom Sharpe to his first novel as Chav lottery winner, AJ, arrives in a secluded close and upsets the fragile balance between his five new neighbours. From the initially friendly Christian family to the downright hostile Major, AJ faces a battle that he takes up with a will. Ambitious Kathi, artist Ralph, and rich boy Jack make up the other residents Ralph s alliance with the Major in particular leads him into catastrophic and hilarious situations. The characters dance around preconceived prejudices often with bellyaching hilarity mixed with a tender poignancy as relationships ebb and flow. The dogs also have their day as AJ s enormous and illegal Viera and the Major s Yorkie, Betsy, come to grips with the action; eagerly, hopefully and always disastrously trying to do their best to please the leaders of their packs!
