Therapy

Winner Commonwealth Writers Prize
book | 1995

As Tubby's life fragments under the weight of his self-obsession, he embarks - via Kierkegaard, strange beds from Rummidge to Tenerife to Beverley Hills, a fit of literary integrity and memories of his 1950s South London boyhood - on a picaresque quest for his lost contentment...
