Review:

'The Insult is one of those rare, perfect, all-consuming books where your life takes on a new colour and texture for the days you are in its thrall' Mail on Sunday 'An astonishing exploration into the blurred hinterland where fiction meets fantasy ... Both crisply precise and extravagantly daring ... The Insult is a remarkable achievement' Sunday Telegraph 'A stunning premise, brilliantly unravelled ... It confirms Thomson in the front rank of English authors' Observer 'The Insult met every requirement I felt I could possibly have of a novel ... Breathtakingly clever' The Times

Book Description:

The utterly engrossing and disturbing novel from the author of Divided Kingdom

Book Description VINTAGE, United States, 1997. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. "We are in the dark side of the brain--full of grief and deliciously strange comedy. I've never read anything like it." --Michael OndaatjeWith this eerie, provocative, and utterly original novel, Rupert Thomson takes the psychological thriller into unexplored territory. Martin Blom is walking toward his car in a supermarket parking lot when a single random bullet pierces his brain. From that moment he is blind--his doctor says permanently. But then one evening Martin discovers what is either a genuine miracle or a delusion suffered occasionally by the newly blind: in the dark, he can see.Armed with this ambiguous gift, Thomson's protagonist enters a nocturnal world of strip clubs and sleazy hotels. In that world, an alluring young woman may give herself to the one man she thinks is unable to see her, only to vanish inexplicably. In that world, a blind man may become a murder suspect. And in the gorgeously disorienting world of The Insult, reality itself is a consensual hallucination. And you succumb to it at your own risk. "Reads like an unholy collaboration between Oliver Sacks and Edgar Allan Poe." --Time Out "Thomson is a master stylist, a virtuoso of the hallucinatory image, a writer with a dark vision and a bright future." --Washington Post.
