9780099429586: Love And Garbage

The narrator of Love and Garbage has temporarily abandoned his work-in-progress - an essay on Kafka - and exchanged his writer's pen for the orange vest of a Prague road-sweeper. As he works, he meditates on Czechoslovakia, on Kafka, on life, on art and, obsessively, on his passionate and adulterous love affair with the sculptress Daria. Gradually he admits the impossibility of being at once an honest writer and an honest lover, and with that agonising discovery comes a moment of choice.

Review:

"A sad and hauntingly beautiful elegy for just about everything mortal" ( Time Out)

"Few writers have the invention and skill to juxtapose within one novel so many diverse themes, mundane and sublime, savage and compassionate, held in a satisfying balance. He tosses time and space about in a net seeking to catch the eternal" ( Observer)

"The dilapidated regime Love and Garbage depicts is now of course on history's rubbish dump. One of those who helped to put it there is this writer" ( Sunday Times)

From the Publisher:

‘Few writers have the invention and skill to juxtapose within one novel so many diverse themes, mundane and sublime, savage and compassionate, held in a satisfying balance. He tosses time and space about in a net seeking to catch the eternal…It is rare that one meets a new literary voice of such originality and mastery.' Observer
