The Passenger

Peter Wild

Whitlow has been asleep for 15 years during which time just about everyone he knows has become famous, moved to America, won and lost a fortune and retired to lives of embittered obscurity. How can a person cope knowing that everything they ever wanted passed them by while they slept? What this has to do with a raven that looks like Ian Curtis singing She’s Lost Control on the Old Grey Whistle Test and a tramp who stinks of hair soaked in urine is anyone’s guess. (Amazon)It is refreshing to read a novel that majestically walks the tightrope somewhere between philosophy, myth and day-to-day living in Stockport??? The next time I walk through Mersey Square or past the viaduct I will see them in a new light and will certainly now be asking myself some bigger questions about my life and the people in it:(Amazon comment)
