Description

Jacob Little is in trouble - existential trouble. Ten years ago, in pursuit of a philosophical theory, he ditched his girlfriend Solace and took to the road, adopting a series of personae and obsessions: he's been Keith, the archaeologist, Otto, the purple-bearded pagan, Isaac, the gardener, and many more.

Now, with no sense of who he is at all, he's decided to find the one person who knows the real Jacob - Solace.

Jacob's quest leads him to Solace's Scottish hometown and into the lives of four people with their own issues: his self-deluding landlady; a teenager looking for a grand romance; an old watchmaker longing for a son; and a young girl who would rather be a boy.

Each sees Jacob in a different light. For each, he is a catalyst. But where does that leave Jacob? And will he ever find Solace? As deadly serious as it is funny, this is a novel about identity, love, religion, memory, self-perception, modern Britain and time.

A novel to make you question yourself; a novel to obsess about.
