THE SAD TALE OF THE BROTHERS GROSSBART
What happens when the Brother’s Grimm team up with Quentin Tarantino and Irvine Welsh? Diabolical carnage of the most grotesque and disturbing kind – but funny too, right, in a sick kind of way? Welcome to the imagination of Jesse Bullington.
The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart is not for the weak of constitution. Hegel and Manfred Grossbart are two of the most wretched, dislikeable but fascinating characters you will read this year. Travelling across plague-ravaged Europe on a grave-robbing expedition to ‘Gyptland’, the twin brothers corrupt everyone that has the misfortune to cross their path. Along the way their philosophical musings and twisted moral perspective will appal and delight you in equal measure.
This is the most exciting kind of debut novel – a book that announces an author with a fresh new style and who is unafraid to take his readers in new, dangerous directions. It’s not perfect and it’s definitely not for everyone but if you love your horror gruesome, your heroes morally corrupt and your humour dark and sharp, then you cannot go past The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart.
