Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2014
Seventy-year old avant-garde composer Peter Els opens the door one evening to find the police outside. His DIY microbiology lab has come to the attention of Homeland Security. Panicked by the raid on his house, Els flees and turns fugitive, waiting for the evidence to clear him and for the alarm surrounding his activities to blow over. But alarm turns to national hysteria.
As Els feels the noose around him tighten, he embarks on a cross-country trip to visit, one last time, the people in his past who have most shaped his failed musical journey.
"Extraordinary and confounding… mind-spinning and wonderful" (
Independent on Sunday)
"Sweet, funny, sad and haunting… A formidably intelligent, ecstatically noisy novel" ( Guardian)
