9780099575245: First Novel

An accomplished piece of metafiction by a creative writing professor, about a creative writing professor, writing a novel—complex, gripping, and extremely enjoyable

Either First Novel is a darkly funny examination of the relative attractions of creative writing courses and public sex in parking lots, or it's a twisted campus novel and possible murder mystery that's not afraid to blend fact with fiction in its exploration of the nature of identity. Paul Kinder, a novelist with one forgotten book to his name, teaches creative writing in a university in England. Either he's researching his next breakthrough novel, or he's killing time having sex in cars. Either eternal life exists, or it doesn't. Either you'll laugh, or you'll cry. Either you'll get it, or you won't.

About the Author:

Nicholas Royle is the author of six previous novels, including Antwerp, as well as two novellas and a short story collection, Mortality. He runs Nightjar Press, reviews fiction for the Independent, and teaches creative writing.

Review:

"I began by simply enjoying the novel and ended up being thrilled, horrified, disturbed. First Novel is absolutely at the forefront of everything I've read in British fiction over the last couple of years." --Jonathan Coe
