It s got a really little dolphin.
It s got sea lions.
It s got God.
It s got a really cool lighthouse.

When Nige runs over a Norwegian backpacker while attempting to save petrol, his life really turns to shit. He throws the body in a nearby road works and runs to his best mate of fifteen years, Deano. The trouble is, Deano s not really the guy you should turn to in a crisis.

Praise for Two Little Boys

  • Twisted, surprising and very very very funny. Did I put too many verys? I don't think so - Jemaine Clement, 'Flight of the Conchords'

  • It's not often you read a novel which makes you laugh out loud over and over again as you turn the pages. Two Little Boys is one of those books: quick, clever, twisted, acutely funny - New Zealand Weekend Herald

  • A laugh-out-loud romp . . . [Duncan Sarkies] has a brilliant ear for dialogue and an innate sense of timing . . . Somehow he's managed to make his first novel funny, chilling and incredibly touching - Press Association

  • Dark, twisted and idiotically funny . . . hilarious and heart-rending - Emma Lennox, The List

  • It's all here - funny, manslaughter, attempted murder and a short road trip and a love story - Greenock Telegraph

  • Gem of a novel ... a well thought-out, challenging and hilariously dark read - TNT Magazine

  • Duncan Sarkies' TWO LITTLE BOYS is a bogan buddy novel from New Zealand... the novel has a bit of Cheech and Chong, a touch of Dumb and Dumber, a pinch of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure... Sarkies has a rambunctious sense of humour, and it will appeal to the young-adult market. - The Age (Australia)
