• The Breaking of Liam Glass

    The Breaking of Liam Glass by Charles Harris. A debut novel. What a great read.

    I have known Charles for years and mentioned on this blog last year his book about pitching called ‘Jaws in Space’ which was released last year.

    Now his novel The Breaking of Liam Glass is due to be released this Thursday, 29th June. I had the good fortune to be one of the reviewers and loved it.

    This is what I said on Amazon: “This is a well-researched, witty, insightful book, a crime story with a twist and a look into journalism and general life in one of the poorer areas of London. The world it represents has recently been brought into focus with the tragic circumstances of Grenfell Tower. I would highly recommend this book and I look forward to Charles’ second novel.”

    Charles was saying that the novel was inspired by a short story he wrote years ago about a young lad, a promising footballer who was stabbed. As these things do the story grew and the novel that emerged is a crime-satire - not so much a Whodunnit as a What-they-did-after-it. The story of the 24 hours after that teenage footballer, now called Liam Glass, was stabbed and is lying in a coma, and the piranhas - Jason and worse - who try to use Liam’s story to forward their careers.

    And Jason, a desperate journalist, has revealed himself to be a fascinating mix of comic hero and anti-hero, someone you want to succeed almost despite yourself. A young man whose heart is in the right place and yet faced with enormous moral tests which he doesn’t always pass.

    Keep on writing.
