Reviews for Compression

Compression tells the story of Flanagan, a man who, having cracked the music business with the punk band he started while at school, returns to a reunion in the small town in which he grew up. However, returning to his old stamping ground brings back a lot of memories, many of them disturbing, and some pertaining to his part in the death of a homeless man.

Things get really complicated when it transpires that the police investigation has just re-opened…

Here is what just some of the reviewers say:

'I loved the narrative and the way the author highlights the life of a punk celebrity'.

Books Charming

'In a word, Tim Cundle’s Compression is gritty'.

Small Press Reviews

'Goddamn, does Tim Cundle know how to twist that literary knife'.

Decibel Magazine

‘I found myself absorbed after the first few pages and it’s a solid piece of work’.
