Format: Hardcover
Norman Miller, a burnt-out middle-aged reporter now working for a sleazy tabloid, is the man caught in the centre of this bizarre Kafkaesque tableu. Descending into a maze of sordidness and futility, he begins to question whether he is a spectator of the events before him, or whether he is actually an actual participant by virtue of some unfathomable chain of cause and effect. Burn's literate, topical prose, a collage of jargon, brand names and colloquiallisms, manages also to hint at the inner world of the distraught narrator, presenting a believable picture of middle-aged disaffection and loss. The fragmentary, digressive plot manages to evoke effects that are at times expressionistic, at times cinematic, almost phenomenological, as a barrage of images and situations come hurling at the reader, in the manner of experiences received in raw perception. This confidently-handled contemporary character study will appeal to all those who take an interest in the more sordid and scuzzier aspects of life today.
