What they say:
“[Stefan] Mohamed won the unpublished writer’s category of the Dylan Thomas prize with Bitter Sixteen in 2015. It was the first volume of a trilogy featuring superheroes, talking dogs, monsters and the apocalypse, refreshingly expressed in a flip, deadpan style. Following the fortunes of Stanly Bird, who finds himself in possession of superpowers – telekinesis and the ability to fly – it wittily delineates youth and pop culture. Mohamed’s fourth novel, Falling Leaves, is out now.”
