Electricity

by Ray Robinson

This compelling novel pulls no punches as its narrator Lily struggles to come to terms with her past, live with severe epilepsy, and look for her long lost brother Mikey. A first novel that's gritty, often humorous and thought provoking.

Extract

When I picture myself chucking a fit, I see myself from behind. I stiffen up like a shop dummy, scream like an animal being shot, then topple. I see myself in slow motion, like in a film. I look unhinged, and when I hit the floor, I begin my hurly-burly .... My life's all chopped up to fuck because my stupid fucking brain keeps flipping off and on.
