From the Author

SMOKE - 'Grim, but really good.' Ian Rankin 

DIRTY OLD TOWN - 'A rare talent.' Allan Guthrie 

SPEEDLOADER - 'Nigel Bird is fast becoming one of the top writers in his genre.' Luca Veste 

IN LOCO PARENTIS - 'In Local Parentis is terrific, start to finish.' Charlie Stella 

'I consider Bird to be an heir to a British literary tradition: the works of Alan Sillitoe, John Braine, and others from the late 1950s and early '60s...[featuring] young anti-heroes who clash with staid society.' Mets6986 

'In Loco Parentis is a rare and devastating book.' Chris Rhatigan 

'Beautiful, painful and excruciatingly brilliant writing.' McDroll 

'Mr Bird is a master. [He] leads you, heart in mouth, all the way to the end.' Nicola Rain Jordan 

'The real deal.' Les Edgerton 

'A fantastic writer.' Donald Ray Pollock 

'A dark near-masterpiece.' James Mowry 

'Nigel's first-person narrator has personality and verve, a unique voice that sets the writing head and shoulders above and apart.' Elaine Ash
