(2006)
A novel by

 
 
Taking Comfort is a stylish and compelling first novel, original yet reader friendly. You won't have encountered anything quite like it before. Amongst many other things the book explores the complex interaction between the notions of comfort and discomfort in modern society, how we take comfort in the solidity and sexiness of products, use this slim consolation as a cushion against the randomness and tragedy of a world we know too much about and can control too little. The everyday reality of the central character in the novel begins to fracture over the course of a few days. Bad things happen around him. Very bad things. How is he to cope? How is he to take comfort? And what about the hooded murderer with the hammer?
