Product story

This book has been selected and reviewed by Michael Prodger for the RA Magazine: Issue 131 Summer 2016.

This satirical novel of London's contemporary art scene follows an unnamed artist on his creative and financial uppers. While imbibing whatever he can get at private views (a show of Cibachrome prints of celebrities' thumbs at the Black Hole Gallery, for instance), he is offered the job of artist in residence at a neurological institute in Gray's Hospital. So begins his entertaining and enlightening entanglement with the amnesiac Emily and the mysteries of the brain.
