Review

Original, funny and absolutely spot-on. --The Independent

Jules et Jim with a postmodern twist. Nath has a confidence and attitude that rocks you on every page. --Daisy Goodwin

Stylish, very funny, discreetly surprising, this remarkable novel reads at times like a fable of England under New Labour, where nothing is quite what it seems and not much is worth what it costs. But it's not a fable. It's the subtle, semi-sad story of a lost man, who has wit enough to have found himself several times over if he had really been looking. --Michael Wood

Product Description

This darkly comic and highly original novel is set over two weeks in 2004, where we find protagonist Dr Mark Chopra, a chaste and passive neurologist. One evening Mark is summoned to help his intriguing friend Ian, whose girlfriend Laura has, simply, vanished. When we learn of the images of Laura that play in the film-roll of Mark’s mind, we realise that this disappearance has bigger consequences than initially meets the eye. Always more ready to read than to act, Mark draws on the lessons of the great philosophers and generals as both men settle in to the comfort of a drink as they try to figure out what it all might mean.

What are the triggers that can free such a man from his passive state and transform him into a gallant knight and go after his beloved Laura? Uneasily inhabiting a world which has the air of being orchestrated around him, Mark must accept assistance from extraordinary people in unexpected places, and sift enchantment from whatever might pass for reality if he is to learn the lessons of Don Quixote and La Rochelle.

Shortlisted for the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction

‘Original, funny and absolutely spot-on.’ – The Independent
