Review:

"The story is populated by quirky characters and is told in language relished as much for its idiomatic sound as its verisimilitude."-- "Irish Times"

(East Sussex, United Kingdom)

Book Description Weidenfeld & Nicolson, London England, 1989. Cloth. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition. Hardback. First Edition. Waterstain mark to bottom edge of inside D/J. This book is a wickedly funny, yet horrifying story of obsession, of the macabre, of things they prey on the mind. Nilus Moore, a young irish boy, lives with his father in their decaying and shambolic house. Taking refuge in his room, he frenetically makes and re-makes a fifty-thousand-piece matt black jigsaw, associating the completion of the ext flat symmetrical shape with the death of his mother, yet unable to tolerate a single missing piece. In this potent and poetic first novel, the author has created a disquieting picture of a mind disordered yet obsessed with order, a haunting and witty combination of the surreal and traditional, and a chilling tribute to the power of the imagination. 166 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions ,and all types of Academic Literature.) Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Hardback. Seller Inventory # 077531
