Inhaltsangabe: The first novel from the bestselling author of At Swim, Two Boys, now reissued in Scribner; Nilus Moore, a young Irish boy, lives with his father in their decaying, shambolic house. Haunted by the death of his mother, he escapes the chaos outside in the refuge of his bedroom, where he obsessively makes and remakes a matt-black jigsay and checks the perfect folds of his sheets. His garlic-chewing father has taken to his bed with a bottle of brandy, oblivious of his brother's plans to demolish his already-crumbling home - now filling up with a bizarre collection of paying guests. As the rest of the household seems to tumble down around him, the atmosphere grows ever more alarming and Nilus has to struggle to keep his house - and his mind - from falling apart.
Inhaltsangabe: A macabre story of obsession set in a decaying guest house. As his father slowly drinks himself to death, Nilius takes refuge in his room where he battles to keep control of his senses, frenetically making and remaking a 50,000 piece matt black jigsaw.

Buchbeschreibung Weidenfeld & Nicolson, London England, 1989. Cloth. Buchzustand: Very Good. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Good. First Edition. Hardback. First Edition. Waterstain mark to bottom edge of inside D/J. This book is a wickedly funny, yet horrifying story of obsession, of the macabre, of things they prey on the mind. Nilus Moore, a young irish boy, lives with his father in their decaying and shambolic house. Taking refuge in his room, he frenetically makes and re-makes a fifty-thousand-piece matt black jigsaw, associating the completion of the ext flat symmetrical shape with the death of his mother, yet unable to tolerate a single missing piece. In this potent and poetic first novel, the author has created a disquieting picture of a mind disordered yet obsessed with order, a haunting and witty combination of the surreal and traditional, and a chilling tribute to the power of the imagination. 166 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions ,and all types of Academic Literature.)
