Kev King has the world at his feet.

His is the world of top flight football: where brands are all, lifestyle is god, adoration is obligatory and there is nothing – and no one – that money can’t buy.

And up until last season, Kev had the Premier League status to match his premier lifestyle. Now, relegated to a lowly league, forced to watch injured from the bench, and paranoid about his girlfriend’s rising celebrity profile, he feels less in control of his life. And it’s making him angry. Fighting his way back to the top, he leaves a trail of destruction. But can his millions and his talent keep him at the top of his game – or are his violent secrets about to rob him of everything he has?

C. M. Taylor’s Premiership Psycho is a compelling, hilarious and horrible insight into celebrity culture and a brilliant fictional portrayal of contemporary football.


Wickedly funny. The world of Premier League football has been crying out for merciless satire, and finally it arrives. I doubt Garth Crooks will ever work again.
Guardian columnist and BBC Five Live pundit Martin Kelner.
Like bankers and senior BP executives, footballers are unaccountable until something goes wrong. They represent the worst of what's happened since the 1980s.

Taylor is clearly a very accomplished and witty prose stylist.
Daily Mirror
As with all good satire, this dystopian vision inspires laughter and loathing in equal measure.
Independent on Sunday
Brilliantly appalling and absurdly fun.
