Andy Kaufman

While we warm up for the momentous task of throwing open our doors for submissions we thought it would be a good idea to give you an idea of what we like. First up is Andrew Kaufman’s slim but splendid little book All My Friends Are Superheroes. Why do we like it? Because it is short, sharp, pacey, packed with quirky characters and brilliantly kooky. Mr Kaufman keeps you hanging right to the final sentence.  The writing is tight and light of touch and like all good writing doesn’t get in the way of the story.  A 5* Burning Eye recommendation we wished we had published ourselves.

What is the story? What is the plot? What is it about? Hey, go read it, we are not going to spoil it for you!
