Sadomasochism for Accountants is about love, laughter and lunacy, though you may doubt me after reading the title. I don’t believe you can experience one of the former two without the latter lurking sensed but unseen in the shadow of those emotions. In her debut novel Rosy Barnes blends the three in a variety of ways that should seem familiar in varying degrees to most adults.
Rosy's style reminds me of Carl Hiaasen. Loads of characters make this story a comedic romp with each playing a significant part in the plot. You might expect so many major characters to make the story a confusing muddle but each has an unexpected depth which makes them vital to the reader's enjoyment of the story as a whole.
