      Fu Manchu stalks Virginia Woolf through the streets of Bloomsbury in the new novel by this acclaimed young writer.

    Iris Murdoch pops into an internet chatroom to discuss sex, literature and life-after-death with the impetuous Funkymonkey ... Marion from the delicatessen counter fatally crashes her Fiesta while yelling into her mobile phone ... and the evil Dr Fu Manchu chases Virginia Woolf screaming through the streets of Bloomsbury ... Disasters, secret identities and heart-to-hearts in the middle of the night ...

    From the wild and unfettered imagination of Paul Magrs comes his most extraordinary novel yet. Ostensibly a week in the life of an ordinary Norwich community, Aisles unfolds into a strange, tender fantasy. The lines between friendship and love, between affection and frustration, between being and not being; all are explored through the complex lives of his characters.

    A novel for anyone who refuses to accept the ordinary, Aisles is the work of one of literature's most exciting young talents.
