Publisher Description

This page-turner with a difference by multimillion copy bestselling author Paul Sussman is a must-read for anyone looking for something original.

'More than lives up to its promise... it's the first novel Sussman ever wrote, yet the things that made him such a distinctive writer - his boundless imagination, his love of the bizarre, his ability to keep a complex plot bowling along - are already firmly in place. The book is as darkly funny as it is original'

'My name is Raphael Ignatius Phoenix and I am a hundred years old - or will be in ten days' time, in the early hours of January 1st, 2000, when I kill myself...'

Raphael Ignatius Phoenix has had enough. Born at the beginning of the 20th century, he is determined to take his own life as the old millennium ends and the new one begins. But before he ends it all, he wants to get his affairs in order and put the record straight.

Beginning with a fateful first adventure with Emily, the childhood friend who would become his constant companion, Raphael here remembers the multitude of experiences, the myriad encounters and, of course, the ten murders he committed along the way...

And so begins one man's wholly unorthodox account of the twentieth century - or certainly his own riotous, often outrageous, somewhat unreliable and undoubtedly singular interpretation of it...
