Matt Sumell

Making Nice
  • Making Nice

  • Meet Alby.

    Natural habitat: a bar; a boat; his bedroom; a broad's bedroom.

    Favourite hobbies: starting fights (then losing them); hooking up with broads (then losing them); hating cats (it's a skill); training Gary the baby bird to be a killer (sort of).

    Best kept secret: when his mum died it broke his hear and he doesn't really know what to do about it.

    'Sumell's savage humour is thrilling'
    New York Times

    'Gloriously funny'
    Literary Review

    'Making Nice has an anarchic humour and a goofy, ingenious humanity that makes every page feel new'
