‘A brilliant exploration of what it is to love, and to be human, The Humans is both heartwarming and hilarious, weird, and utterly wonderful. One of the best books I’ve read in a very long time’ S. J. Watson, author of Before I Go To Sleep
Rarely have I enjoyed reading a glossary. This ties in very nicely with THE HUMANS and, while independently amusing, will work much better of you’ve read that novel first. Some very sharp, funny entries, too. Nice, understated humour throughout.
