Oskar is the ultimate teenage loner. He's been living on the streets since the age of 13, he hates being touched and his eyes are always itchy from chronic conjunctivitis. To perk himself up he paints the misery of mankind and there’s so much of that about!

But one day during a not-so-routine eye test his bleak perspective is blown apart, when he tries on a pair of very unusual lenses. The world he glimpses is filled with love, light and joy – and Oskar is furious.

But somehow those lenses have changed his perception for good, revealing the  beauty and wonder that surround him. Much against his darker nature, Oskar's behaviour begins to change in ways that he could never, ever have predicted...

The Spectacular Vision of Oskar Dunkelblick will be available from 8th November 2018 from Amazon, Kindle, Waterstones and all other good bookshops.
