When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type is girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. 19 times, to be exact. On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed up child prodigy has £10,000 in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight best friend riding shotgun - but no Katherines. Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself.
