A daring, brilliant work by one of our most original and fearless
novelists. 'Why should I let you write about me?' 'Because you'll
inspire people. To count their blessings.' Aldo Benjamin,
relentlessly unlucky in every aspect of life, has always faced the
future with despair and optimism in equal measure. His latest
misfortune, however, may finally be his undoing. There's still
hope, but not for Aldo. His mate Liam hasn't been faring much
better - a failed writer with a rocky marriage and a dangerous job
he never wanted - until he finds inspiration in Aldo's exponential
disasters. What begins as an attempt to document these improbable
but inevitable experiences spirals into a profound exploration of
fate, fear and friendship. Anarchically funny and wildly
entertaining, Quicksand is a subversive portrait of 21st-century
society in all its hypocrisy and absurdity, an exquisite
interpretation of suffering and resilience, and a powerful story
about taking risks and finding inspiration.
