Steven Hall was born in 1975. After completing a fine arts degree, he became one of the founding members of Manchester's Wet Nana and has produced a number of plays, music videos, conceptual art pieces and short stories. He lives in Hull.
Go read this book! It is such a beautiful and vulnerable story about love and loss and what someone might want to do to set things straight. Erik Sanderson might have taken it a step to far getting himself involved in some serious trouble. With the possibility that his brain will shut down and he will forget everything again he tries to find a way to understand what has happened in the past. Getting the answers puts him back on the dangerous trail he was on before he lost his memory. His desperation jumps from the page straight into your brain and all I could do as a reader was hoping he would make it eventually.
I really loved Ian, Eric's cat, too. Despite the fact he cannot talk (thank you!!) he is really a part of the story giving his own swing to situations, often a hilarious one.
