Sobre este título:


He has nowhere to go. So he goes there. The narrator of THE SOCIETY OF OTHERS is an alienated young man who sees no meaning in life. He doesn't even see the point of getting out of bed in the morning. To get his family off his back, he embarks on an aimless hitchhiking adventure around Europe. But his journey soon turns into an orgy of violence. With all the pace and thrust of a thriller, THE SOCIETY OF OTHERS is also a moral fable, bursting with art, poetry, music and ideas. A journey. Just not the usual kind. I'm not a bad person. I'm a bad person. I didn't mean to kill the man in the reading room. I did mean to kill the man in the reading room. What happened afterwards wasn't my fault, don't blame me. It was my fault. Blame me. He has nowhere to go. So he goes there. It's a journey. Just not the usual kind.

Críticas: 'A novel that demands attention. William Nicholson is someone we are going to hear a good deal more about.' -- Catholic Herald

'An intriguing story, a suburban drama that quickly unfolds into a surreal tale with big ideas and meaning...Thought-provoking.' -- Daily Mirror

'Exciting, funny, wise and beautifully written ... One of the best novelists around.' -- Piers Paul Reed, Spectator

'Extraordinary, a sort of wild combination of Kafka and THE CATCHER IN THE RYE ... The reader will not escape unchanged.' -- Jill Paton Walsh

'Extraordinary...a sort of wild combination of Kafka and THE CATCHER IN THE RYE...The reader will not escape unchanged.' -- Jill Paton Walsh

'Vastly ambitious...Thrilling in every sense, but also hypnotic, fast-moving and intellectually challenging...quite staggeringly good.' -- Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail

‘Nicholson describes it as ‘a thriller about the meaning of life’, and that’s pretty accurate ... A genuinely though-provoking read.’ -- Mail on Sunday
