Author(s): SARKIES, DUNCAN
This book has got a lot of good bits. It's got penguins and toasted sandwiches. It's got a dead cat and an incredible climax. It's got a really little dolphin. It's got sea lions. It's got God. It's got a really cool lighthouse. When Nige runs over a Norwegian backpacker while attempting to save petrol, his life really turns to shit. He throws the body in a nearby road works and runs to his best mate of fifteen years, Deano. The trouble is, Deano's not really the guy you should turn to in a crisis.
'Twisted, surprising and very very very funny. Did I put too many verys? I don't think so' -- Jemaine Clement, 'Flight of the Conchords' 'It's not often you read a novel which makes you laugh out loud over and over again as you turn the pages. Two Little Boys" is one of those books: quick, clever, twisted, acutely funny' -- New Zealand Weekend Herald
