A novel by Tom Gidley
Two nameless protagonists talk about their lives in a series of alternating short chapters. Unaware of each other, and speaking from two different periods of time in London (one an office worker in the mid nineties, the other a homeless man shortly after the turn ofthe new millenium) their very different experiences begin to overlap and mirror each others’ in various ways. Both reach a point of crisis and their lives draw inexorably closer together, leading to a tragic and unexpected conclusion.
