About the book: 
A beautiful new Vintage Classics edition to celebrate the 15th anniversary, and 10 million copies sold worldwide, of this wise, blackly funny, radically imaginative novel.
 
A superb achievement. He is a wise and bleakly funny writer with rare gifts of empathy’  - Ian McEwan
 
It was 7 minutes after midnight. The dog was lying on the grass in the middle of the lawn in front of Mrs Shears’ house. Its eyes were closed. It looked as if it was running on its side, the way dogs run when they think they are chasing a cat in a dream. But the dog was not running or asleep. The dog was dead.
 
This is Christopher’s story, and through this radically imaginative and generous novel, his world is revealed, full of terror, love, strangeness and surprise.
