'We got a McDonald's the night my mam got lung cancer.'
As a distraction from sleazy male admirers, spiteful classmates and her mother's cancer, Eve's eyes are opened to a multicolour life of one night stands, drug fuelled discos and endless varieties of cheap plonk. She barely has time to notice Adam. Adam, however, notices Eve. Whilst contending with sexual frustration, a violent father and increasingly compulsive behaviour, is he too busy reading Razzle in his bedroom to make his move?
Narrated alternately by Adam and Eve, alongside a cast of teenage delinquents, perverts and butterflies, Apples is an exploration of the difficulties of growing up, the complications of friendship, and the consequences of getting 'fucked as quick as you can'.

Review: ApplesUser Review - Ryan Williams - Goodreads
Granta publishes a list of the 20 best young British novelists. If they ever publish a list of the worst, I dearly wish to see Milward top it. This is a pissing awful book. Read full review

Apples is a tragic, troubling and weird read — but not a bad one either. Read full review here http://raven-reads.blogspot.co.uk/ Read full review
