Mark is a practical man; he expresses his feelings in actions rather than words. When his wife Nicole tells him that his ex, Kim, has called, he?s speechless. He hasn?t seen Kim or his daughter, Lily, for over ten years. When Mark meets Lily, it is not the joyful reunion that he had been hoping for. She has grown into an angry and wayward teenager, much like her mother, and when Lily comes to stay with Mark and Nicole for Christmas, her disturbing presence threatens to destroy the new life Mark has built for himself. Kids? Stuff is a painfully revealing novel about the modern man and the terrible damage that family members can do to each other.

Review quote

?Henry Sutton has taken us into one man?s Hell and made it seem frighteningly real? Sunday Telegraph ?It is Sutton?s greatest achievement here that his narrative keeps us interested in the fate of such a profoundly unpleasant man. This fascination may be unhealthy, even upsetting, but it is expertly managed by acutely observed dialogue and almost forensic description? Times Literary Supplement ?Sutton is a good writer? gutsy, muscular. This is a no-nonsense account of one man?s losing battle to keep the disparate strands of his life from unravelling? Time Out
