What a great book, not quite finished yet but won’t be long. This book has lots, and I mean lots of sexual activity. It is the story of Skunk Cunningham who lives in a square in a suburb where half of the houses are state housing. Her brother is seduced by one of the skanky girls who live over the road, Skunk is in love with a gypsy boy (she is 11!), the father of the skanks is a drunken drugged out bully and the neighbourhood live in fear of him, especially the boy in the house across the street, who was beaten to a pulp and has never recovered. He is the Broken of the title. Fantastic stuff, it’ll make you laugh, cry and hold your mouth open in disbelief. Great reading.
