Fol­low­ing his ac­claimed de­but, The Vin­tage and the Glean­ing, Jeremy Cham­bers’ new novel, Sub­ur­bia, is a rev­e­la­tion: a com­ing- of-age drama about the end of in­no­cence, set in a hidden world of pal­ing fences and fra­grant lawns. ‘Cham­bers is a great writer. He’s the real thing.’ M. J. Hy­land
