Recommended Read: One Day In The Life Of Jason Dean by Ian Ayris

jason deanFirst published by Byker Books and now published by Near To The Knuckle, One Day In The Life Of Jason Dean is a gem.

Jason is a debt collector and gangster’s enforcer who loves Shostakovitch, poetry and his little girl. He awakes at the break of a harsh day next to a wife who hates his guts.

Ian Ayris – whose- debut novel Abide With Me was one of my favourites of 2012- follows Jason’s Sisyphean trudge through the course of that single day and gives us a powerful novella that is tense, harrowing, violent, funny and very moving.

Exceptional.
