Product Description

Details

Based over nine days, "Out of Office" is a gritty fast-paced novel about a man dissatisfied with life. Set around the time of the 2012 Olympics, the novel sees a chaotic London, with failed terrorism attacks and significant problems in the City, leading to a growing sense of unease. The central character Christian Hook finds his life spiralling into freefall - abstinence broken, his marriage disintegrating, Christian leaves work in search of something better. Set in a troubled London and living with the anxiety of regular terrorist bomb plots (failed for now), Christian finds himself being drawn into a world of violence, racism and terrorism. As Christian's life spirals out of control, he cannot help himself being pulled further into this dangerous underworld, and is not sure he would want to stop even if he could.

Press Reviews

He possesses a way with metaphor and analogy which, when utilised sparingly and with a lightness of touch, rivals Martin Amis. He is expert at offering up succinct definitions of the quite complex web that multiculturalism, changing technologies and generational misunderstandings can weave around us. Open Wide Magazine
