The Man Without Summary


The Man Without by Ray Robinson

Antony Dobson has lived through a lot in his short twenty-six years. Desperate, loveable and utterly confused, he gets a kick out of taking risks, gets a thrill from taking himself right to the edge and, so far at least, back again. But haunted by childhood memories and guarding a dark, humiliating secret that he dare not reveal, he's hurtling fast towards the point of no return.

Impressive and irresistibly readable, this tight-rope-walk of a novel explores memory, love, identity, and absence in a dazzling display that is in turn sad, witty and deeply affecting.

Praise for Ray Robinson's first novel, Electricity:

'An energetic debut, bristling with talent' The Times

'Its fast, furious plot, kaleidoscopic imagery, blunt observations and a wry, ingenious, hugely compassionate heroine make this eviscerating debut novel a breath-taking assault on the senses' Guardian
