Luxury Amnesia

(1999)
A novel by

 
 
Imagine Withnail and I framed for a murder they didn't commit, on the run from the Law with a body in the back of their van. The result is Luxury Amnesia, a pacy, tense thriller with a heap of comedy thrown in for good measure. Andy Gates is a has-been. Formerly a bassist with the one-hit-wonder band Overload he now makes his money decorating the houses of the filthy rich and spends his time mooning over angelic ex-fling Sara while trying to avoid Phil, the band's deluded, ridiculous singer and front-man who plagues him with a never-ending stream of ideas for Overload's come-back. These two wasters are forced into action and even heroism when their millionaire friend Mark Bowring is found dead and they are the prime suspects. David Huggins is an illustrator whose work has appeared in a number of newspapers and magazines. His first book The Big Kiss won The Bad Sex Award in 1996. With stacks of rancid crockery, mouldy takeaway cartons, stinky T-shirts and vomit on every other page--not to mention the endless array of brilliantly corny turns-of-phrase--Luxury Amnesiais not a story for the squeamish but will grip readers with a strong stomach and a taste for bawdy page-turners. --Anna Davis
