Reviews

"Today his book's very incompleteness makes it seem whole, and his ambiguity about the 'life of the mind' all the more poignant." London Review of Books 'Today his book's very incompleteness makes it seem whole, and his ambiguity about 'the life of the mind' all the more poignant.' London Review of Books This collection of short stories, with repeat characters, explores the "condition" of the young male of this period, his hopes and dreams, with a psychological intensity that feels surprisingly fresh and contemporary. Scottish Sunday Herald Earnest fans of Samuel Beckett with a fair knowledge of the topography and street-names of Amsterdam could love this book with a passion. Sunday Times
