Its been a very busy week for Trapnel, so little time to think about books (unfortunately). However, better late than never I bring you my Book of the Week. Joe Dunthorne is young, Welsh, and a poet. Submarine (Hamish Hamilton) is his first novel. It is funny, offensive (to some), and has attracted very strong reviews. You can listen to the author read the first chapter. Buy it now (signed and dated, target price around £20).
