When Nige runs over a Norwegian backpacker while attempting to save petrol, his life really turns to shit. He throws the body in a nearby road works and runs to his best mate of fifteen years, Deano. The trouble is, Deano’s not really the guy you should turn to in a crisis.


Jemaine Clement, 'Flight of the Conchords'
'Twisted, surprising and very very very funny. Did I put too many verys? I don't think so'
New Zealand Weekend Herald
'It's not often you read a novel which makes you laugh out loud over and over again as you turn the pages. Two Little Boys is one of those books: quick, clever, twisted, acutely funny'
Press Association
'A laugh-out-loud romp . . . [Duncan Sarkies] has a brilliant ear for dialogue and an innate sense of timing . . . Somehow he's managed to make his first novel funny, chilling and incredibly touching'
Emma Lennox, The List
'Dark, twisted and idiotically funny . . . hilarious and heart-rending'
Greenock Telegraph
'It's all here - funny, manslaughter, attempted murder and a short road trip and a love story'
TNT Magazine
'Gem of a novel ... a well thought-out, challenging and hilariously dark read'
The Age (Australia)
'Duncan Sarkies' TWO LITTLE BOYS is a bogan buddy novel from New Zealand... the novel has a bit of Cheech and Chong, a touch of Dumb and Dumber, a pinch of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure... Sarkies has a rambunctious sense of humour, and it will appeal to the young-adult market.'
