Stylistically it's all wrong, with almsot beginners' faults such as a first person narrative that steps sideways into the minds of the people he meets, or describes their actions when he's not there. But as the scenes become more and more dreamlike it becomes clear that this is a strange Alice-in-Wonderland nightmare that Mr Ryder cannot easily escape from.
There's a lot going on in the novel, and it will probably benefit from more than one read. But I'm not quite ready to go down that particular rabbit hole again just yet. Great stuff!
A compelling book, Kafkaesque (a compliment!), or perhaps with shades of Mervyn Peake. Must have.
Oh, and the scene with the broom cupboard is one of the funnisest things I've read in years.
