9780571297894: Strange Bodies

Nicholas Slopen has been dead for months. So when a man claiming to be Nicholas turns up to visit an old girlfriend, deception seems the only possible motive. Yet nothing can make him change his story. From the secure unit of a notorious psychiatric hospital, he begins to tell his tale: an account of attempted forgery that draws the reader towards an extraordinary truth - a metaphysical conspiracy that lies on the other side of madness and death. "Strange Bodies" takes the reader on a dizzying speculative journey that poses questions about identity, authenticity, and what it means to be truly human.

About the Author:

Review:

Ingenious ... The unfolding of the narrative is genuinely eerie, but the richness of allusion and elegance of design makeStrange Bodiesas much an inquiry into language and identity as a high-concept literary thriller ... Moving as well as thought-provoking, as elegiac as it is gripping. Guardian Strange Bodies is an examination of contemporary consciousness. But from its robust hook, through its comic set-up, to its dark if hopeful conclusion, it is also a kindly, intelligently entertaining thriller. TLS An absorbing and disturbing metaphysical tale, challenging everything we believe about what it means to be human. -- John Gray, author of Straw Dogs - This is a superb technological fantasy, a tense thriller and a brilliantly imagined debate about the relationship between body and soul. Wonderful. The Times A bold and wonderfully weird novel by Marcel Theroux, which reads like an intelligent, witty flirtation between serious literature and science fiction ... The perfect literary thriller for the internet age ... Theroux weaves a taut, edge-of-your-seat tale which asks whether one way or another we can live on after death. Couldn't put it down. Red Brilliantly imagined ... You'll be left with much to ponder by Theroux's intellectually engaging imagination. Metro What is on the menu is superior science fiction ... the novel exercises a grim fascination. Mail on Sunday Theroux demonstrates both great literary craft and an eye for the worst kinds of human suffering. SFX Magazine
