Paul Ableman's modern masterpiece was first published by the Olympia Press of Paris in 1958, to instant acclaim. The narrator of I Hear Voices is a young schizophrenic who transports himself, and the reader, through a wondrously transfigured city where the real and the fantastic blend together in a seamless enchantment. The continual stream and buzz of events is often comical, occasionally wrenching, and always unpredictable. Encounters with Miss Carpet, The Commissioner, Merkitt and Mrs Oil, among others, are filled with poignant satire and disquieting honesty in this vision of the fragmentation of contemporary life. This Faber Finds edition of I Hear Voices includes a preface by Margaret Drabble: her obituary for Paul Ableman, who died in 2006. "The book, not excluding Lolita, which gave me the greatest pride and pleasure to publish". (Maurice Girodias). "A strikingly fresh and original work of art...The writing is brilliant; both terrifying and hilariously funny". (Philip Toynbee, Observer). "Subtle, humorous, clinically authentic". (Times Literary Supplement).
