Who could be a more vulnerable hero than a novelist in search of a plot? In The Destroying of Harry Blyne, Scottish writer Peter Moir Fotheringham fashions a muscular tale from the plight of a floundering author whose satisfying though uninspired life suddenly takes on nightmare colors when someone starts trying to drive him mad. In the end his troubles inspire him to new levels of creativity, but not before he undergoes assorted horrors. Blyne is a highly sympathetic character transfixed and then transformed by events.
