Several Deceptions, Paperback

Several Deceptions Paperback


These four novellas are narrated by a brilliantly distinctive voice telling the stories of an Anglo-Italian Professor of Semiotics undone by his own cleverness; an Irish woman who joins a Tibetan nunnery in India; the old university friends whose party is galvanised by a pugnacious newcomer into a demented Buchanesque mission to restore their hostess's lost humour; and an international lawyer who takes to terrorism in pursuit of a theory.

Several Deceptions is clever, funny and a little cruel and introduces a writer of quite remarkable gifts.
