Alan Warner presents an unforgettable story of female friendship, as six young women meet at Gatwick - and prepare to go on the rampage.

Look out, World! Six 20-something women gather at Gatwick Airport, and their only certain destination appears to be mayhem. With Alan Warner’s pitch-perfect ear for dialogue, pinpoint characterisation and glorious set-pieces, this is a novel propelled by conversation through excess and debauchery, hilarity and sadness. Resembling the young women at its centre, The Stars in the Bright Sky is vivid and brimming with life - in all its humour, squalor and rage.
