The Man Booker Prize Best Novel (nominee)
'Storey's fiction ought to . . . secure his reputation as one of the most original writers of his generation.' - The Guardian

'The leading novelist of his generation.' - Daily Telegraph

'Swift, clean and painful . . . as good as anything he has done.' - The Times

'Mr Storey is an absorbing writer, and he captures in a completely believable way the terrible bleakness of Pasmore's family's coal-mining town and the bewilderment and anguish of a family falling apart.' - The New Yorker

'Remarkable . . . an admirable piece of writing.' - Boston Globe

To all external appearances, Colin Pasmore has a happy life: not yet thirty, with a wife, three children, a nice home, and a good job as a university lecturer, everything seems to be going right. But after he is beset by a recurring nightmare, he begins to experience the terrifying sensation that his whole life is unravelling. He is suddenly unable to bear the presence of friends and family, incapable of touching or communicating with his wife, dissatisfied and even embarrassed by his job. He finds himself looking on in helpless horror, struggling to understand why his entire world is disintegrating around him. . . .

Pasmore (1972), David Storey's fourth novel, won the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. This new edition is the first in more than 25 years and features the original jacket art by the author. Storey's Radcliffe and Saville (winner of the Booker Prize) are also available from Valancourt Books.
