From the publisher

Pat Gray’s Kafkaesque fantasy presents a bureaucratic landscape which is both sinister and comic.

Mr Narrator leads an obscure neo-colonial existence in Goughly, where he is an export agent for a firm of Rotherham engineers and shares a flat and a mistress with Murphy, a post-modernist writer. An upset to one of his business deals plunges him into a bizarre cross-desert journey to the capital, where, social, political and sexual humiliation descend on him in ever increasing number.

Pat Gray’s novel portrays with documentary accuracy a Morocco which has never existed but one which has now been colonised by surrealism
