C is the story of Serge Carrefax, a young man who sees the world uniquely and lives a short life unlike any other. Born at the dawn of the 20th century, Serge is quickly steeped in the weird emergent technologies and seductive new machinery of the day u radio, cars, aeroplanes. When personal tragedy strikes, Serge's scientific passions shade into something darker, eclipsing his ability to engage with the world, people and daily life. But this existential malaise unleashes joyful new possibilities and an incredible story of death, sex, addictions and mythologies, taking us from the eerily idyllic settings of pre-war Europe to the battlefields and prison camps of World War One, and on to the London of the roaring twenties and finally the ancient tombs of Egypt. Reminiscent of Bolano, Beckett and Pynchon, this is a remarkable novel u a compelling, sophisticated and sublimely imaginative book uncovering the hidden codes, patterns and dark rhythms that sustain human life.
