Umbrella, CD-Audio Book


Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2012, Umbrella is Will Self's most extravagant and imaginative exercise in speculative fiction to date. Could modernity be an illness? Umbrella follows the story of Audrey Death, who fell victim to the encephalitis lethargica, sleeping sickness epidemic at the end of the First World War and has been in a coma ever since.

Arriving at the asylum she still lingers in, maverick psychiatrist Zack Busner becomes involved in an attempt to bring her back to life - with wholly unforeseen consequences.
