English Summary/英文概要： “What a find. This book is seriously good. I mean, seriously. I’d recommend it to anyone, whatever your usual genres of choice. J D Dixon has a real gift, the innate sort that cannot be learned from classes. The book is raw, rough in places, and sometimes shocking. It’s also immensely sad. It’s just - great. One of the best debut novels I’ve ever read.”
Awards/获奖情况： Shortlisted for the Somerset Maugham Prize 2018.
“A brave book that demands to be read… One of the best accounts of homelessness that I have read. Drink deep of this book.”Netgalley
“A gritty and somewhat dark story about Willem, a man who lives in a world limited by his intellectual capabilities. This book was certainly a sad and hard look into how society views and treats those who don’t "fit" into the parameters of what is considered normal, and how individuals tend to reveal the worst of humanity when it benefits them - no matter the harm to someone who can’t fully defend themselves. It left a very melancholy and depressing feeling when I finished it, but had many insightful truths that are around us every day.”Am At Home
