Behindlings

(2002)
(The second book in the Thames Gateway series)
A novel by

 
 
The breakthrough commercial novel from one of the greatest comic writers in the language Some people follow the stars. Some people follow the soaps. Some people follow rare birds, or obscure bands, or the form, or the football. Wesley - the hero of this book - prefers not to follow. He thinks that to follow anything too assiduously is a sign of intellectual weakness. Wesley is a prankster, a maverick, a charismatic manipulator, an accidental murderer. For these reasons he longs to live his life anonymously. But he can't. It is his awful destiny to be hotly pursued - secretly stalked, obsessively hunted - by a disparate group of oddballs he calls The Behindlings. Their motivations? Love, boredom, habit, greed, hatred, revenge. Can he stop them? Does he really want to? The only way to find out is to join them.
