WINNER OF THE SOMERSET MAUGHAM PRIZE 'Funny, sad, bewildering and painfully honest, it's a must-read for all fans of Joe Dunthorne's Submarine' Emerald Street Jim Thorne. He wants to understand love. His mum. Her three sisters have epic perms. And they're famous. His dad. He is focused on a vital question: Mario or Sonic? It's England, 1989-2009. So expect a little history. The dolphin's name is Dilly.

So enjoyable... The Adult is closer to a state-of-the-nation novel than any typical bildungsroman * Guardian * I knew from the first page that this was going to be a very funny book, but I didn't realise it would have so much heart and be so beautiful -- Evie Wyld A properly bollock-droppingly brilliant novel * Dazed & Confused * Very funny, beautifully wrought -- Toby Clements * Daily Telegraph * The Adult is a tremendous novel. It takes its place with some of the very best of its genre - the right of passage. Very few people can do it well. Stretch has done it superbly well. I'm not surprised it won the Somerset Maugham Award. I'm sure it will go on to be widely read and cited. I do hope so -- Melvyn Bragg
