The Death of All Things Seen, Hardback

The Death of All Things Seen Hardback



'There was a new beginning. He felt it everywhere, in the sweep of change, in the simple pronouncement of 'Yes we can!" It's 2008 and Norman Price - a moderately successful forty-something playwright living in Chicago - considers the shuddering impact of the financial crash.

What's needed, he thinks, is the will for a new existence.

When his parents die, one shortly after the other, The New Existence becomes Norman's mantra as he tries to recalibrate his own shaken world.

Into Norman's tentative re-building, a couple of bombshells are dropped.

His parents' old house has to go on the market, forcing him to revisit the past. And then he receives a mysterious email from a man he has never met but whose name is instantly, painfully, familiar.

Norman's new existence is suddenly threatened by past secrets.

Michael Collins takes post 9/11 America as the background for a deeply moving novel about complex identities and the fragility of humanity.
