Just before Christmas, some very exciting post arrived in the Crow’s Nest: proof copies of My Brother is a Superhero, the laugh-out-loud funny debut novel by David Solomons. This is one of the books I’m MOST excited about for 2015 – it is just a fantastically witty, warm, brilliantly written book, with buckets of charm. Fans of Frank Cottrell Boyce will LOVE it. And one early admirer, a Mr Steve Coogan, called it, “A brilliantly funny story about growing up, sibling rivalry and saving the world. You’ll laugh until you fall out of our tree house.”
And next week, we’ll be giving away some copies of the proof on Twitter! We’ll be alerting our books newsletter subscribers how to win a copy, so if you’re interested, you can sign up here.
In the meantime, here are the opening two chapters of the book to whet your appetite:
