Under Control

By (author) Mark McNay

Who do you trust? Charlie and her boyfriend Gary are struggling to keep their lives on track in an imperfect world. When the money runs out or the drugs don’t work, love is not always enough. Help is at hand in the form of social worker and guardian angel Nigel, but as best intentions meet compulsive desires, the fates of these three very different people are transformed for good. Under Control is the thrilling new novel from the prize-winning author Mark McNay.

Reviews of Under Control

"* 'PRAISE FOR FRESH Menacing, witty, with snappy no nonsense dialogue and an unambiguously shocking ending, McNay's debut is every bit as fresh as its title.' – Guardian * 'McNay's portrayal of factory life is richly convincing. His language – especially the dialogue – is exact, brimming with life and never strained… The result is a novel whose edgy energy carries you forward… a hugely entertaining, sometimes disturbing, fiction debut.' – Tom Adair, Scotsman * 'This energetic debut owes much to Welsh and Kelman but has vigour all its own… the setting is vivid and the vernacular dialogue sparkles with acerbic wit.' – Big Issue"
