Description

Facing the disarray and disorientation around his father's death, a man contends with the strange and haunting power of the house his parents once lived in.He sets about the mundane yet exhausting process of sorting through the remnants of his father's life -- clearing away years of accumulated objects, unearthing forgotten memories and the haunted realms of everyday life.

At the same time, he embarks on an eccentric side-project. And as he grows increasingly obsessed with this new project, his grip on reality seems to slip.Nicholas Royle challenges and experiments with literary form to forge a new mode of storytelling that is both playful and inquisitive.

Tender, absorbing and at times shockingly funny, this extraordinary novel is both mystery and love story.

It confronts the mad hand of grief while embracing the endless possibilities of language.
