Viciously funny, brave, challenging and hugely topical, the new novel from Joe Stretch takes us on an unforgettable journey to a frighteningly familiar world. Are you ready?
Joe Stretch was born in 1982 and brought up in Lancashire. He moved to Manchester at the age of 18 to study politics at Manchester University. His band, Performance, in which he is lead singer and lyricist, released their debut album in 2007.
"Facebook mindfuck for the bollocks generation. I loved every
funny, filthy word of it" -- Nicholas Royle
"Wildlife is hilarious, frightening and bonkers, like forcing a sheet of blotter acid into your computer's floppy-disk slot... Stretch's second outing finds the author somewhere between a demented, devilish David Attenborough and William S. Burroughs, exposing the disgraceful, manic behaviour of the strangest of all living creatures: ourselves" -- Richard Milward
"It is heartening to discover that the contemporary novel can still do amazing things... A serious meditation on technology and individualism. Ballardian in scope, and equally as exciting as his brutal debut" -- Lee Rourke * Independent *
