James Marlowe puts in long alcohol- and cocaine-fuelled hours as an advertising director. As his life disintegrates around him, he comes to despise his clients, the corporate world, and himself. Now his imagination is fired by a set of characters he calls The Zoo. They lead him into a world crazier than the one that's thrown him out. The way back to sanity might lie behind the fantasy.
"A truly exceptional debut novel...sure to be one of the big hits of 2015." (The Book Trust)
"The Zoo intrigued me from the very first page. Jamie Mollart's debut novel is a grippingly dark and ultimately moving story about exploitation, destruction and the possibility of redemption." (Alison Moore, author of Man Booker shortlisted The Lighthouse)
