Publisher's Summary

On a still and frozen day between Christmas and New Year, a man's body is found lying in his ruined flat. Found, and then taken away, examined, investigated and cremated. As the state begins its detailed, dispassionate inquest, the man embarks on his last journey through a world he has not ventured into, alive, for years. In his wake, a series of fractured narratives emerge as his friends who look on from the shadows, keep vigil as the hours pass.

Depressing but Compelling

It's hard to know how to rate this. It's very well written and exceptionally well read, but also very depressing. The author manages to make me pull for characters I would not wish to spend time with in real life, but their lives are so devoid of hope there's no real payoff. This is partly stream-of-consciousness, part mystery, all misery, yet somehow compelling despite that.
