Burley Cross Postbox Theft

A Novel


From the Man Booker Prize–nominated author of The Yips comes an epistolary novel of startling originality

Small Holdings

Sharp, poignant, and frequently surreal, Small Holdings is a comedy of errors from everyday life by prize-winning author Nicola Barker “I tried to work out which was worse; feeling different but fitting in or being different but feeling in your heart like you should fit but not quite fitting.

Yet Topping’s investigation into the curtain-twitching lives of the eminently respectable Burley Cross residents not only uncovers the dark underbelly of his beat, but reveals an unknown strength of character buried deep within the young flatfoot.

The denizens of Burley Cross inhabit a world of epic pettiness, where secrets are the currency. They plunge into complaints about dog shit, amateur dramatics, and an Auction of Promises that goes staggeringly wrong. Nicola Barker’s epistolary novel is a work of immense comic range, sparkling, disquieting, and thrilling all at once.
