Embryo Boy is an unwanted child who won’t give up. He won’t give up smoking. This book sees his conception, double eviction from the womb, search for housing and gainful employment. All with a dark and mischievous humour that will hopefully alienate nearly everyone. Defiantly Anti Life, Embryo Boy has a sense of world weariness not usually seen in one so young. And before you ask ‘does it have a happy ending?’, it doesn’t have a sad ending…
Also there will be some new screenprints, some free copies of the book and more. Embryo Boy will be making a personal appearance.
