Product Description


`A haunting, funny and altogether remarkable novel' -- JANE SHILLING on Trespass, Sunday Telegraph

`Taylor is marking out territory as distinct and disturbing as
Greeneland, with...a flatlands melancholy that is all his own
-- HILARY MANTEL on The Comedy Man, Sunday Times

`This is a very funny novel; it is also a serious novel, and a
very good one' -- T. J. BINYON on Real Life, Sunday Times


Three fictional journeys in search of the place one came from, and the bitter discoveries that lie in wait. In "Real Life", a veteran of the Soho skin trade returns to his native Norwich, only to find that the past has followed him home. In "Trespass", the former henchman of a disgraced City tycoon sits in an East coast hotel slowly unravelling the truth about the fractures of his early life. In "The Comedy Man", the surviving half of a once-famous comedy duo tries to come to terms with the unfinished business of his career. These three novels were originally published in 1992, 1998 and 2001. Menacing and humorous by turns, each is an intensely imaginative exploration of the difficulties of going back to the places and people who made us what we are. They confirm D. J. Taylor as one of the best writers of his generation.
