Confessions of a Crap Artist Paperback
Part of the Gollancz S.F. series
Jack Isidore is a 'crap artist', a collector of crackpot ideas and worthless objects.
His beliefs make him a man apparently unsuited for real life and so his sister, an edgy and aggressive woman, and his brother-in-law, a crass and foul-mouthed businessman, feel compelled to rescue him from it.
But, observed through Jack's murderously innocent gaze, Fay and Charley Hume are seen to be just as obsessed as Jack.
Their obsessions may be a little more acceptable than Jack's but they are uglier. And, in the end and thanks to Jack's intervention, theirs lead to tragedy ...

Review by jessicariddoch
This book is not what I expected form this author. From someone who wrote Do androids dream of electric sheep we have a book about a couple living in the countryside outside of (american city in california that I cannot remember the name of it as it was not that important to the story. It is a story of a couple who are breaking up, and the brother of the wife who has a strange compulsion with strange facts. I would guess today he would be diagnosed with aspergiers or something.Lucky for me I do like non science fiction and this is a well written book. The people are falling appart and this is causing the world as they like to think it fall appart too. The brother who at the beggining of the book comes to stay with them details this, It is rather weird as he reports the important facts to his brother-in-law, as to what they are.Despite the prediction of one of the periferal characters the world does not end.I would now reccomend this author to non scence fiction readers. it is good
