Brilliant and successful, James Marlowe puts in long alcohol and cocaine fuelled hours as an advertising director, creating a new campaign for an international bank. As his life disintegrates around him he comes to despise his client, the corporate world, and himself. Now his imagination is fired not by slogans, but by a set of characters he calls The Zoo. They lead him into a new, crazier world than the one that's thrown him out. The way back to sanity, the wife and son he's lost, might lie behind the fantasy.

‘a convincing portrait . . . engrossing,’
‘A truly exceptional debut novel . . . sure to be one of the big hits of 2015,’
