This is the first time I've used pre-numbered labels. They don't work quite the way I expected, but I think I've got the hang of them now after a little experimentation. The AF below is me.

Found this in an experiment

Winner of the Whitbread First Novel Award 1998.

Update: read September 2013. The narrator is, and knows he is, a difficult character to empathise with. I found myself wondering whether the book would be readable if written in the third person, or whether Garrigan's actions described by someone else would be too disturbing. Instead, the first person narrative draws you into Garrigan's morally ambiguous world.
