Most people agree that the world should be just but that it simply isn't. Rogues flourish, the good die young and many feel they have not received their due. Unlike the rest of us, the anonymous hero of Even does not just complain about it, he embarks on a voyage of self-discovery, searching both for vengeance for the past and justice for the future in a personal attempt to bring balance to an unbalanced world. The result is a quest that ranges across contemporary London and is, by turn, humorous, heroic and horrific, involving Oedipus, fallen dictators and the iniquity of plumbers as it distils ancient wisdom into black humour.

Sharply written and observed, this extraordinary novella of revenge and misfortune offers a lively key to the contemporary world and the curious moralities of other cultures.
