The Miracle Inspector: heart-breaking dystopian fiction

There's a great review for The Miracle Inspector over at The Momus Report.

"The pleasures of this book are the means Smith employs to dance around our expectations and its extrapolations from contemporary nanny state idiocies or government infringements on constitutional rights. Lucas and Angela are also both, in their respective ways, incredibly vulnerable. Their lives are reduced to extended acts of mummery, like kids dressed in their parents clothing. This is affecting and heart-breaking fare, with a sly wit."

You can read the rest of the review here.

The Miracle Inspector is currently available as an ebook via The Kindle Store in the US and the UK.

You can pre-order the print book online from,, Barnes & Noble, Blackwells, The Book Depository, Foyles, W H Smith, Waterstones or from your local independent bookshop (mine include Clapham Books, Herne Hill Books and The Bookseller Crow and they will all stock it). The Miracle Inspector will also be available in W H Smith stores at airports and train stations so please look out for it if you're travelling in the UK.
