But one night in Las Vegas, shocked by violence and ambushed by memories, he is propelled back to his real name and his real past. Back to Bethany Wilder: carnival queen, partner in dreams, and tragic ghost.

From the acclaimed author of Ten Stories About Smoking comes an electrifying novel about the power of dreams to destroy, of memory to distort ? and of what it means to be home.

Críticas: 'So intelligent and perceptive and so well-written . . . this first novel is a fine achievement, something to savour. When I had finished it, I went back and read it again, and it seemed even better second time round.' Allan Massie, Scotsman

'Assured and unsettling.' Amber Pearson, Daily Mail

'A hugely original, unforgettable debut . . . Both gut-churning and beautifully written, this is a must read.' Easy Living

'A deft, affecting piece of work about possibility and identity. It heralds a fresh, new voice destined to roll gold bars on the slot machine of literary life.' Sinéad Gleeson, Irish Times

'Adept and inventive . . . A quiet triumph,' Ben East, Observer

'British fiction?s latest great hope . . . Slowly revealing its secrets, this book has a remarkable power to unsettle.' Graeme Allister, The Word

'Evers knocks out enviably beautiful prose, and the humming, muffled, air-conditioned neverland of Las Vegas is conjured up with a captivating and woozy effect . . . A compelling book.' Hugo Rifkind, The Times
