AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Hilarious and heartbreaking, Creepy & Maud charts the relationship between two social misfits, played out in the space between their windows.

'Creepy is a boy who watches from the shadows keenly observing and caustically commentating on human folly.

'Maud is less certain. A confused girl with a condition that embarrasses her parents and assures her isolation.

'Together Creepy and Maud discover something outside their own vulnerability — each other's. But life is arbitrary; and loving someone doesn't mean you can save them.

'Creepy & Maud is a blackly funny and moving first novel that says; "You're ok to be as screwed up as you think you are and you're not alone in that."' (From the publisher's website.)
