* LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN writer Jeremy Dyson's darkly comic and suspenseful short story collection - reissued by Abacus
'With the intelligent, surreal humour we might expect from a member of THE LEAGUE OF GENTLEMEN, NEVER TRUST A RABBIT breathes new life into the drama of the ordinary urban thirty-something, in a series of modern morality tales about enchantment in everyday life' THE TIMES
Unsettling premonitions, fortune-telling cashpoints and disappearing mazes all converge in Jeremy Dyson's first book - a collection of short stories that established him as a formidable storyteller on original publication. Reissued in Abacus with a new introduction by the author, NEVER TRUST A RABBIT has already become a cult favourite.
A collection of short stories that aren't as gruesome as his television work might lead us to expect, but tick all the right boxes for macabre, surreal fiction. From the supernatural to the just plain odd, these vignettes are imaginative, diverting and never less than entertaining. A deserved reissue for twelve unsettling tales - HERALD
There's the flatmate born to save all mankind, a mysterious tale of tidal behaviour and an old man disclosing the dark secret of the Underground. As surreal as you'd expect - DAILY EXPRESS
Admirable . . . it reflects a boldness that's rarely seen among Dyson's confreres - a willingness to dream - GUARDIAN
A striking debut. His stories nestle in the little vacant chink between Roald Dahl and Borges - OBSERVER
