    Eddy, Eddy
    <b><i>Eddy, Eddy</i> is a coming of age story, a love story, an earthquake story and a story of finding your way back from grief.</b><br/><br/>Eddy Smallbone (orphan) is grappling with identity, love, loss, and religion. It's two years since he blew up his school life and the earthquakes felled his city. Home life is maddening. His pet-minding job is expanding in peculiar directions. And now the past and the future have come calling - in unexpected form. <br/><br/>As Eddy navigates his way through the Christchurch suburbs to Christmas, juggling competing responsibilities and an increasingly noisy interior world, he moves closer and closer to an overdue personal reckoning. <br/><br/><i>Eddy, Eddy</i> is a richly layered novel, deftly written with humour and pathos: a love story, peopled with flawed and comical characters, both human and animal; and a story of grief, the way its punch may leave you floundering - and how others can help you find your way back. <br/><br/>Loosely mirroring <i>A Christmas Carol</i> by Charles Dickens, <i>Eddy, Eddy</i> revels in language's stretch and play, the blessings of story and songs, and the giddy road to adulthood.<br/><br/>'Intense, funny, shocking and exuberant, <i>Eddy, Eddy </i>is a brilliant, rich and effervescent novel about the myriad ways - sometimes right and sometimes dazzlingly wrong - that we find to save ourselves, when, like Eddy, the plates shift underneath our feet and the chasm opens.' Ursula Dubosarsky<br/><br/>'Lock your doors, put your phones on silent, and enjoy losing all track of time when you're introduced to Eddy and his complicated, endearing, off-beat world.' Emma Neale<br/><br/>'<i>Eddy Eddy</i> is sublime: so subtle &amp; beautiful.' Carole Beu, Women's Bookshop
