Publication Date19-Sep-00
Book DescriptionThese four novellas are narrated by a brilliantly distinctive voice telling the stories of an Anglo-Italian Professor of Semiotics undone by his own cleverness; an Irish woman who joins a Tibetan nunnery in India; the old university friends whose party is galvanised by a pugnacious newcomer into a demented Buchanesque mission to restore their hostess's lost humour; and an international lawyer who takes to terrorism in pursuit of a theory. Several Deceptions is clever, funny and a little cruel and introduces a writer of quite remarkable gifts.
Editorial Review"Four exquisitely crafted novellas introduce a brilliant new writer.' --Harpers & Queen 'An impressive first collection . . . These stories are refreshingly, unapologetically erudite. They are also extremely funny.'- Observer Here is a gossipy, smart, critical, intellectual, high-spirited and literate voice. It is like a secret retreat where readers can simply rejoice in intelligent, stylish prose.'-Times Literary Supplement"
