'Remarkable' - Colm Tóibìn, author of Brooklyn
Shortlisted for The Goldsmiths Prize and the James Tait Black Prize for Fiction
Book of the Year Selection in the Guardian, New York Times, Spectator, Hot Press and The White Review

In A Shock, a clutch of more or less loosely connected characters appear, disappear and reappear. They are all of them on the fringes of London life, often clinging on - to sanity, solvency or a story - by their fingertips. With this deftly conjured high-wire act, Ridgway achieves a fine balance between drama and fidelity to his characters. The result is pin-sharp and breathtaking.

'Like Finnegans Wake, only readable' - The Times
'Ridgway squeezes into the gaps of realism and makes something beautifully new'- Guardian

Keith Ridgway is from Dublin, and lives in London. A Shock is his fifth novel.
