Ben Brooks was born in 1992 and lives in Bulgaria. He is the author of several books, including Grow Up, Lolito, which won the Somerset Maugham Award in 2015, and the runaway international bestseller Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different.
The most reassuring thing about this book is that it's so good. How
anyone can have an adolescence as deranged as Brooks's was and
still produce work of this calibre is final proof that what your
mother said was right: it's only a phase. * Daily Mail *
