Product description

Review

With his gallows humour and observational wit, Jim Powell gives us a vivid portrait of a man in meltdown. ― Daily Mail

[Trading Futures] has a Reginald Perrin charm about it and an unexpected twist in the tail, but it stays affably bleak to the end. ― Sunday Times

What starts as a light and droll Reggie Perrin-style novel about the fall of a middle-aged everyman, a "perfect makeweight in an identity parade", becomes surprisingly dark and intense. We see the crack-up through Matthew's eyes, which also allows for some wittily caustic observations about modern living. ― The Times

Powell is very good on the sense of lost youth, nostalgia and what might have been . . . This is a novel that is at once honest and cautionary. ― Financial Times

Between rasping comedy and gentle melancholy, Jim Powell excels in evoking those liberating moments where the course of a whole life can change. ― Le Figaro

Review

The brilliantly observed and very witty story of one man's unravelling.
