Man Crazy

Man Crazy

An intense roller-coaster ride into the abyss, MAN CRAZY charts the fall and rise of teenager Ingrid Boone, abandoned by her father, moving from town to town, taking what she can get and always giving too much in return. This is a novel about the horrors waiting at the end of the road for the innocent, but in the end it is about one girl’s realisation that men don’t make you more real, that pain isn’t an integral part of normal life.

The bizarre twists and turns of Ingrid's life take on a hallucinatory intensity ... the one constant of the gripping story - the emotional deprivation that has scarred Ingrid for life - comes through with a fierce burning clarity
