Recommended by a friend and now passing it on. This is a must read; bitingly funny, grotesquely larger than life and a little guy hero against the bad big world. Ex-in-laws who should be outlawed driven by greed and excess; debauched tastes, twisted pleasures and gate-crashing the party of the year; and the hedgehog, that is just so wrong! Snappy, gut-achingly funny descriptions and a darkly satirical edge. Brilliant!

A completely brilliant novel! Inspired over the top comic futuristic sci-fi. I nearly walked into a lamp post while reading this on my android phone. Devilishly well observed characters; a crackingly good narrative, with astute political overtones; this world is one that I wish existed in more than one book. Sort of drug induced Jilly Cooper sex/equestrian scenes; a victimized good guy, a hideous ex wife, and something you really ought not to do with a hedgehog!
I will recommend this to everyone. When you get another book out I'm buying it! Thanks Darby, you made me laugh so hard I couldn't breathe. Looking forward to your next book.
