    DescriptionMeet Oliver Tate, 15. Convinced that his father is depressed ("Depression comes in bouts. Like boxing. Dad is in the blue corner") and his mother is having an affair with her capoeira teacher, "a hippy-looking twonk", he embarks on a hilariously misguided campaign to bring the family back together. Meanwhile, he is also trying to lose his virginity - before he turns sixteeen - to his pyromaniac girlfriend Jordana. Will Oliver succeed in either aim? Submerge yourself in "Submarine" and find out...

    Review quote
    'A brilliant first novel by a young man of ferocious comic talent' The Times 'Transplants The Catcher in the Rye to south Wales ... Dunthorne can make you laugh like you did during double physics on a wet Wednesday afternoon' Observer Dunthorne captures the mores of Britain today better than novelists twice his age. He is sure to write books that declare more than their vocabulary New Statesman Brilliant ... laugh-out-loud enjoyable. The sharpest, funniest, rudest account of a troubled teenager's coming-of-age since The Catcher in the Rye Independent
