WHAT MAKES LIFE WORTH GETTING OUT OF BED FOR? Mal isn’t like the other kids. So remarkable is his childhood that his family wait for the incredible things he seems born to do. Then one day he goes to bed, never to get out again. Recounted by Mal’s younger brother, Bed is a coming-of-age story like no other. It chronicles the metamorphosis of one extraordinary man, and explores what love, loss and family can do to you in a lifetime. Enchanting, funny, surreal and heartwarming, David Whitehouse’s novel presents one of the most thrilling and unique voices to emerge from Britain in years.
