From the publisher

'Mud is fucked up. It’s unlike anything else. It’s amazing.' – Sam Jordison, Co-founder Galley Beggar Press

'Engaging and witty… It’s the oddest book of the year, and another triumph for this trail-blazing publisher.' – David Collard, The Idler

To end their relationship Borak and Karissa must find a bubble of air buried among twenty-four types of mud. On their descent into subterranean London they are followed by a film crew and its odious Director, documenting their quest.

As they chance upon bones, bricks and a talking mole, they must restrain themselves from throttling each other, and falling in love all over again.

Chris McCabe‘s macabre version of Orpheus and Eurydice brings its themes into the present day : a contemporary re-tuning of the mythic ‘Father of Song’.
