When Luke Skywalker first held his light sabre, he said he could almost see the remote. At first I didnt understand what he meant: the ether, the other, the coming and the gone. My name is Toasty and as for my background, that page has been intentionally left blanker.If Alan Sillitoe had eaten kebabs and bottom-quality narcotics, would he have been such a great writer? No, hed have been James Radford.Saturday Night Blanker is a naturalistic comedy set in Nottingham (wherever that is) starring Toasty, a twentysomething whose life isnt going anywhere - until it goes, somewhere. With more levels than a video game classic, it begins as a novel about lairy lads living for the weekend and becomes a struggle for survival, or at least, it does in the mind of Toasty, a narrator whose powers of description defy. A journey through the bottom rungs of society, Saturday Night Blanker will show you the downtrodden, the asocial, the obesely morbid and above all, the painfully peng.With Saturday Night Blanker, James Radford has created his own post-post-modern literary genre for the 21st century: kebab fiction. As you consume this, you will ask yourself more than once what the hell is this doing in here? and yet, you will not stop until there is none left, despite your creeping fear of what it might be doing to you. You will be glad when you have had enough of this.Published 11/12/13 14:15:16
