Product description

Review

"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." --Times

"Haunting, quietly brilliant . . . a rare and remarkable achievement: a novel that meshes storytelling potency with historical erudition." --Boston Globe on The Breaking of Eggs

Review

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