    Antony Dobson has lived through a lot in his short twenty six years Desperate, loveable and utterly confused, he gets a kick out of taking risks, gets a thrill from taking himself right to the edge and, so far at least, back again But haunted by childhood memories and guarding a dark, humiliating secret that he dare not reveal, he s hurtling fast towards the point of noAntony Dobson has lived through a lot in his short twenty six years Desperate, loveable and utterly confused, he gets a kick out of taking risks, gets a thrill from taking himself right to the edge and, so far at least, back again But haunted by childhood memories and guarding a dark, humiliating secret that he dare not reveal, he s hurtling fast towards the point of no return.Impressive and irresistibly readable, this tight rope walk of a novel explores memory, love, identity, and absence in a dazzling display that is in turn sad, witty and deeply affecting.Praise for Ray Robinson s first novel, Electricity An energetic debut, bristling with talent The Times Its fast, furious plot, kaleidoscopic imagery, blunt observations and a wry, ingenious, hugely compassionate heroine make this eviscerating debut novel a breath taking assault on the senses Guardian
