Spack's Debut Novel is met with acclaim

Joe Dunthorne, our very own spack ( from ABCtales, has had his debut novel Submarine published by Hamish Hamilton and it has met with some great reviews.

Joe's first submission to this site back in 2001 was in the character of a boy who suffered from a total allergy to modern life. It was so compelling that we thought it might be a true story - and his novel is from the perspective of a 15 year old boy - and again it rings perfectly true.

Here's a selection of those reviews - but do let me know if you find others that are worth reading:,,332305206-110648,00.html
