El enorme magnetismo del libro reside en gran parte en Gary, su protagonista y narrador. Orgulloso, descarado, pero de una nobleza irreductible, y con mucha mala vida a sus espaldas. Alguien profundamente herido, pero decidido a sobrevivir a todo; también a si mismo. En su descenso a los infiernos hay algo inmaculado, a pesar de todo: el fuego que habita en Gary. Su fuerza y su autenticidad. Y el azul de sus ojos, como un día despejado. Este maleante encantador es un caballo desbocado que en un momento de su vida pierde pie. El show de Gary es una novela memorable acerca de las victorias sobre uno mismo, un recuento de todos los fantasmas interiores que hay que vencer para abrazar el milagro ordinario del dia a dia y hallar la redencion de una vida que podamos llamar nuestra.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 024118424X, Hardcover)

'Leyshon is a master of domestic suspense' - Observer 'There's different ways to do it: I can slowly move closer step by step, or I can do it in one movement and bump into them. Easiest is in a pub then I can put my drink too close to theirs. Move my stool near theirs. Anything to cross the line.' Gary is a dipper, a burglar, a thief. He is still at junior school when his father first takes him out on the rob, and proves a fast learner: not much more than a child the first time he gets caught, he is a career criminal as soon as he is out again. But Gary is also fiercely intelligent - he often knows more about the antique furniture he is stealing than the people who own it, and is confident in his ability to trick his way out of any situation, always one step ahead. But all that changes when he falls for Mandy...
