"Brighton Babylon is a sharp enjoyable page turner with Peter Jarrette pulling no punches with his rapier wit and stories of our city's uber-colourful lifestyles. No matter where in the UK you live, you'll no doubt see hilarious glimpses of yourselves and your friends in this fab roller-coaster novel. Already Brighton Babylon reads like a TV mini-series and you'll be gagging for the sequel!" Marc Abraham, Author and TV Vet "Set though it is in Britain's provincial capital of seediness and sleaze, Brighton Babylon reflects the desires and distractions, afflictions and addictions of city dwellers everywhere. Featuring tramps, trolley dollies, transients and possibly Triazepan, Peter Jarrette's is a shockingly fresh voice offering a modern social commentary poured with humour and served with a splash of poignancy. A Sex and The City for a fresh and funky century."...Julie Burchill: Writer "A knowing romp through the bawdy back alleys of Brighton. Great fun, witty and full of the complicated characters that lurk below the surface of this fine city" ...Martin Webb: Entrepreneur, Freelance Contributor Daily Telegraph, Presenter Risking It All Channel 4 TV "Peter Jarrette's new book takes you on a tour of the hidden almost seedy underbelly of Brighton, often obscured by the town's beautiful facade. Peter is great at captivating his audience with a plethora of motley city characters, and opening a window in to their unusual lives. Let's hope Peter follows in the footsteps of Brighton's array of successful authors!" ...Verity Craig: Editor Absolute Media "A veritable romp of a novel showcasing the vibrancy and general nuttiness of the City of Brighton and Hove and Peter himself. A well-written page turner, guaranteed to tickle your ribs with every chapter." ... Briggy Smale: Music Entertainment Correspondent & Author
