“It’s about a dystopian future where fierce bands of marauding children do battle against soul-crushing shadow men. It’s about a delusional drug addict driven insane by childhood trauma. It’s about a mad scientist’s over complicated plan to save the world, with the help of a team of superheroes imprisoned in a magical amulet. It’s about a sad, bullied nerd who finds consolation in comics and his imagination. The Wrenchies contains all of these occasionally contradictory storylines…. The Wrenchies is so resolutely multidimensional that it’s tempting, upon finishing the book, to turn it upside down, or try to read it back to front, to see what other worlds it might contain. Reminiscent at times of Stephen King, TS Eliot, and The Warriors, Dalrymple’s created a world where linear narrative is exploded for the artifice it is…”
