9780140298369: Mr. Phillips

Mr. Phillips wakes on a summer's Monday morning in his modest, nearly mortgage-free house, ready to face another ordinary working day. Except this day is far from ordinary, for on the previous Friday, Mr. Phillips was summarily sacked. Unable to deal with this disaster--unable even to tell his own wife--Mr. Phillips rises at his usual hour and prepares himself for the job he no longer has. As he wanders the streets of London, what he sees triggers memories. Gradually a picture develops of a decent man who, only days before, knew exactly who and what he was--husband, home-owner, father, valued employee--and on this day wonders who and what he can become.

Using the bits and pieces of one man's past, John Lanchester has drawn a fully dimensional life and, in the process, made in Mr. Phillips an Everyman for our times.

Product Description:

One Wednesday morning Mr Phillips climbs out of bed and prepares for his commute into the city. But it will be no ordinary day for the cautious middle-aged accountant; it will be, he later realises, the first day of the rest of his life - whether he likes it or not. From the author of THE DEBT TO PLEASURE.
