Carl Maria Hitzner, his mother and a British Army truck driver had left the ruins of war-torn Germany for “a better life” in England. In many respects it was better but the sheer horror of his mothers immediate past wasnt so easy to shed.In this, book 1 of the Giant trilogy, the titular giant - a fowl-mouthed 28 stone youth with an IQ of 160 and a passion for the works of Shakespeare – begins as Carl’s tormentor but soon becomes his protector. Lester Winterbottom, a school friend and neighbour of Carl, together with his psychic mother, do all they can to protect Carl from his violent mother, but to little effect, until the giant comes up with a brutally decisive “solution” to his problem.Be prepared to find gloom tempered with laughter throughout these pages. Although the known facts of this story are (inescapably) the stuff of tragedy, the characters behave, for the most part, as if they didnt know it, which is one way good people cope when the world gets out of hand.Book 2 (The Return of the Giant) and book 3 (Auf Wiedersehen Mr Giant) are due to appear in the 2015.
