Book Description

May 2000
Guy Simpson works in the City of London. A young, brash, amoral Foreign Exchange dealer, he led a life of hedonistic excess--of drugs and sex and alcohol--until two events serve to shatter his outlook, forever. First he discovers an ex-girlfriend is pregnant, then his beloved two-year-old niece becomes permanently brain-damaged. From these two junctures he spirals into despair and self-destructive savagery until, at the end, he tries to take life and death in hand. Absent Fathers is an elegant, disturbing, erotic novel that addresses the conflicts of masculinity with a subtly philosophical wit, against the background of a marvelously realized modern London. It is as contentious as it is memorable.
