Uncorrected Proof Copy : A début novel from James Miller, a young British writer listed in Time Out magazine as one of "London's Rising Stars". Literary, dsytopian SF - thus something we may well see on next year's Clarke short list!
"Urgent, shocking and controversial, Lost Boys sheds light on the secret fears and desires underlying our society, the family, and childhood itself. Drawing disturbing parallels between the childhood desire to resist growing up and the War on Terror. In the tradition of JG Ballard and William S Burroughs, this is a contemporary Lord of the Flies."
