We are absolutely delighted to be reissuing Martin Millar's fantastically funny and quirky novel Ruby and the Stone Age Diet – available now!
Original and compelling, we guarantee that if you pick it up you won't be disappointed. Neil Gaiman loves him, GQ called him 'the funniest writer in Britain today', so what are you waiting for!
Though lovelorn and lonely, the narrator's life is rich with myth, demons, werewolves, gods and goddesses; everything is imbued with a spirit. There's Helena, goddess of electric guitar players; Ascanazl, an ancient and powerful Inca spirit who looks after lonely people; Shumash the sun god; the war and sexuality goddess Astarte; the muse Clio. In fact the only thing stronger and more sustaining than the narrator's fantasy life is his friendship with Ruby – the kind of friendship a body is made for.
