Forlagets beskrivelse
Fiction. Half-drunk on the operating table as an indifferent surgeon cuts a hole in his wrist, Victor Andrews contemplates his impending death with dread and sorrow. It's not dying that makes him distraught, he reflects, but the idea that he may quit his life, after all these years, having understood little or nothing about it. A few deathbed jokes at his own expense will be in order, of course. But what will he be able to say about his life that is true, original, essential? Victor decides, if the doctors don't kill him, to embark on a forensic investigation through the dimly-lit corridors of his mind in search of answers. Murder, love, sex, truth, beauty ... the inquisition must begin. Few corners of a man's mind and soul are left unexplored in this black comedy.

"The book is a real blast! Very enjoyable."—Tariq Goddard, acclaimed author of Dynamo and Homage to a Firing Squad

"Laced with acidic wit, delivered in stunningly elegant prose ... a great novel." —newlondonwriters.com

"... fitfully funny ..." —Kirkus Reviews
Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
"Victor has been several times around the world already--but learned little or nothing from his travels. Encounters with allegedly strange peoples and cultures in far-flung places have failed to teach him anything at all about himself, nor about anyone else, for that matter. I'm going to make a journey of another kind altogether, he decides. To places absent from the travel guides; places I have never been and where few men dare to tread. More perilous, exciting and troubling than he ever hoped for or expected, Victor's unusual odyssey through these unexplored lands leads him to stumble upon a host of revelations. And at least one bizarre and remarkable phenomenon: an extraordinary change appears underway in human evolution; one that he suspects no one else has even noticed. Might Victor be personally concerned by the shattering anthropological discovery that his voyage unveils? No one will believe it, of that much he is sure ... " --
