What would you do if every piece of your identity was stolen? This is the fascinating premise of Exeter Writer member Bill Wahl's debut novel, The Art of Impossibility. We loved hearing extracts from this prior to publication and are convinced that this compelling and quirkily comic novel will be a big hit.
How do you know who you are?
For many years Michael Wilson had managed to disregard the emptiness of his life, until one day every piece of his identification is stolen. His farcical attempts to renew his identity expose him to a world of relationships he can no longer avoid – a world where Mary Magellan, an unpredictable conceptual artist, becomes important in ways Michael could not have imagined. A world where Michael must rely on Larry, a disgraced professor of logic, Sam, a lonely metal head living in his basement, and Julie, a manager of the Vital Records Department who takes a VERY personal interest in Michael’s problems. Hilarious, sad, and relevant. Here is a story of psychological collapse and the possibilities that exist at the boundaries of human experience.
The Art of Impossibility is now available on Amazon Kindle and as a paperback (see Amazon).
