Publisher Description

"Simply an epiphany."—Kirkus, starred review

Simon Austen has the names people have called him tattooed all over his body. Waste of Space. Bastard. A Threat to Women. Murderer. Facing a lifetime behind bars and subjected to new therapies for sexual reprogramming, Simon finds himself plunged into a terrifying process of self-reconstruction. But how much, in the end, can a man really change? Darkly compelling and deeply moving, Alphabet is a psychological exploration of one man’s uncertain and often-harrowing journey towards rehabilitation.

"Intense, revealing, challenging and above all riveting … I kept saying to myself, how could she know this?”—Erwin James, convicted murderer, author of A Life Inside: A Prisoner’s Notebook

“Sometimes novelists go too far—and sometimes they manage to demonstrate that too far is the place they needed to go.”—Time Out UK

“Marvellously well-crafted … I can't remember the last time I was so compelled, impressed and unsettled by the emotional world of a novel.”— Sarah Waters, author of Tipping the Velvet
