Up on Cloud Nine

Publisher: Random House

Stolly has fallen out of a top-floor window and lies, unmoving and unconscious, in a hospital bed. Keeping watch are his best friend Ian and Ian’s mum. While he watches, waits and hopes for Stolly to wake up, Ian decides to write about Stolly’s unusual life.

Normally, Stolly is full of life, words and ideas; he is full of enthusiasm. So why is it that sometimes he seems to be just teetering on the edge of this world? Why is he always having accidents and ending up in hospital? This is a witty, touching and memorable novel.
