9780099268192: The Collector Collector

To a small flat in South London comes a Sumerian bowl: but the bowl is the Collector Collector, clay with something to say, an object d'art who will offer Rosa, its owner, vast swathes of unrecorded history from the last 5, 000 years. Meanwhile, Rosa tries to centre her life and settle the disturbances caused by an uninvited guest, Nikki.

1001 Nights meets the inner city, The Collector Collector is a comic masterpiece and unquestionably the finest novel ever narrated by a bowl.

Review:

"Fischer's impatience and daring pay off. 'I promise you will want to read it more than once,' said Victoria Glendinning, and I've read it three times now, and not because I had to, but because I wanted to. Which is itself out of the ordinary." (Nicholas Lezard Guardian)

"Stranger books have seldom been written, and when they have, they've seldom been this fast-paced, this funny, or this effortlessly readable" ( Detroit Free Press)

"The freshest, most fascinating novel I've read in years" ( Tom Robbins)

"A work of rare enchantment which could charm a smile out of a stone" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"So good I promise you will want to read it more than once" ( Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:
