Coe like many artists seems to set himself a 'challenge' with each new book be it to write from a woman's point of view or too use a Belgian historic festival as a setting (Expo 58)
On the subject of this book, it turns out to be a touch 'Post- Modern' in that as well as being a novel it is also; unobtrusively a book about constructing a novel , I would say it could potentially be a great TV series, it wouldn't be too expensive to produce and could easily be sold to Australia too.

What I need to acknowledge is 'baggage' be it experiences, errors or previous family tensions -often we can see how others have become what they are but choose not to look too closely at our own paths - I suppose that this in a way when we do this we can at last get on with things.
