Gollancz. New. Peter Sinclair is tormented by bereavement and failure, in this haunting, dream-like 1981 novel. In an attempt to conjure some meaning from his life, Peter embarks on a memoir, but finds himself writing the story of another man, in another, imagined, world, whose insidious attraction draws him toward it. Christopher Priest (also the author of the James Tate Black Memorial Prize and World Fantasy Award winner The Prestige) gives us an autobiography that isn't—partly a thriller, partly a haunting study of schizophrenia"So convincing is Mr. Priest's other world that it challenges reality. This is altogether an uncomfortable book that chips away at certainties while enticing with story."—Sunday Telegraph (London)"With formidable imagination and ingenuity, Christopher Priest turns the novel into an Escher tessellation in which figure and ground are interchangeable. Bringing home to the power of narrative to steal reality, affirming nothing, it abandons us mid sentence, posed between page and world, discomfited and hyper-aware."—Times Literary Supplement 248. . 0.
