He edits the fiction fanzine Verbal and lives in London.

Reviews

King loads his characters up with enough interior life, but it's the raw energy of their interactions - the beano to Blackpool, the punch-ups, the casual fucks, the family skeletons and the unburied fantasies - that make this excellent book run -- Steve Grant * Time Out *
Sexy, dirty, violent, sad, funny: in fact it has just about everything you could want from a book on contemporary working-class life in London -- Stephen Chamberlain * Big Issue *
An odyssey into southern English blue-collar manners as King deconstructs the stereotype of Essex Man and his outer London contemporaries and finds rather more complex attitudes towards gender and class than the tabloid image suggests -- Teddy Jamieson * The List *
The realism and political edge echoes Alan Bleasdale's Boys from the Blackstuff -- John Williams * GQ *
