Book Review: Fishbowl by Bradley Somer

August 23, 2015

Hardback by Ebury Press, £12.99 (ebook £4.35) Following the thoughts of a goldfish plunging from the 27th floor of an apartment building is a sure way to grab a reader's attention, but Bradley Somer's second novel is much more than that gimmick. It focuses instead on the inhabitants, including an agoraphobic sex worker, a nymphomanic PhD student and an 11-year-old boy who thinks he can time travel.
