Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Peter Sinclair has lost everything: his father, his girlfriend and his job. Fighting to keep a grip on his life, he resolves to write it down. But what starts as an autobiography soon becomes the story of another man in another world and this other reality draws its creator ever inward - until Peter Sinclair has left real life far behind . . .

"Priest opposes madness and sanity, life and art, the elaborate narrative and the empty page - and then makes them interchangeable . . . an original thriller, a study of schizophrenia set against questions of persona and plot"
New Statesman

"The atmosphere of solitude and mental disequilibrium... is beautifully conveyed, suggesting too the void that underlies all our reality"
D.M. Thomas

"This is altogether an uncomfortable book that chips away at certainties while enticing with story"
Sunday Telegraph
