On the Sunday of his 18th birthday, in 1975, Colin takes a walk on Box Hill, a biker hang-out. There he accidentally trips over Ray, a biker napping under a tree - and that’s where it all starts. This transgressive, darkly affecting love story between men, winner of the 2019 Fitzcarraldo Editions Novel Prize, is a stunning novel of desire and domination by one of Britain’s most accomplished writers.
Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of Kid Gloves, written and read by Adam Mars-Jones.

Intimately trapped in the London flat where the family had always lived, the two men entered an oblique new stage in their relationship.
