The Nerve (Paperback)Glyn Maxwell (author)
Paperback Published: 11/10/2002
- Not available
Glyn Maxwell's fascination with the hidden agencies, motives and agendas behind the most casual and innocent of human exchanges is matched by his gift for their revelation. The Nerve bares the wires that run through our familial bonds, our daily self-delusions and moral choices, our responsibilities of work, love and parenthood. The Nerve is not only, as the title might propose, Maxwell's most sensitive and confident collection to date; it is a meditation on the politics of landscape, a quietly subversive commentary on the Special Relationship, and as incisive and compassionate a portrait of the human animal in the twenty-first century as anyone has yet delivered. Praise for Time's Fool: 'A quite extraordinary achievement ...A daring and unmissable performance' Sunday Telegraph 'Classic yet hip, stylised yet inventive, Maxwell's opus must be destined for cult status' Scotsman
