"One of the most exciting and original novels of the year . . .
It's a tight, thrilling story, told from various characters'
perspectives and has a Slumdog, feel-good pulse beating through it.
A genuine treasure find" -- Sally Morris * Daily Mail *
"One of my favourite novels of 2010, now in paperback with a new cover look. Reminiscent of Slumdog Millionaire, three dumpsite boys take on the world in this gripping and intensely moving story . . . Harrowing, exhilarating, humbling and quite brilliant" -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
"Outstanding, hotly anticipated thriller . . . an exceptionally satisfying plot" -- Amanda Craig * The Times *
"Great stuff: taut, plausible and thought-provoking" -- Toby Clements * Daily Telegraph *
"Trash is a thriller with moral weight and a complex structure . . . Without ever moralising, Mulligan raises issues of corruption, poverty, waste and excess in an exciting, but also grimly sad tale" -- Suzi Feay * Financial Times *
