Review

Trash is a thriller with moral weight and a complex structure . . . Without ever moralising, Mulligan raises issues of corruption, poverty, waste and excess in an exciting, but also grimly sad tale -- Suzi Feay Financial Times Great stuff: taut, plausible and thought-provoking -- Toby Clements Daily Telegraph Outstanding, hotly anticipated thriller . . . an exceptionally satisfying plot -- Amanda Craig The Times One of my favourite novels of 2010, now in paperback with a new cover look. Reminiscent of Slumdog Millionaire, three dumpsite boys take on the world in this gripping and intensely moving story . . . Harrowing, exhilarating, humbling and quite brilliant -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller One of the most exciting and original novels of the year . . . It's a tight, thrilling story, told from various characters' perspectives and has a Slumdog, feel-good pulse beating through it. A genuine treasure find -- Sally Morris Daily Mail
