Publisher Description

“Outstanding” stories from the bestselling author—“as though David Lynch had been let loose on the set of a drawing-room comedy” (The Times).
 
The Museum of Doubt is a collection of surreal and unnerving short stories from award-winning writer James Meek. The array of characters who populate Meek’s vague and elusive worlds are driven by paranoia and doubts, as well as hopes and fears of things only half-glimpsed.
 
“Ricochets between the supernatural and the suburban throughout . . . the writing fizzes . . . This is true experimental writing: careless of taboo, teeming with ideas, elusive yet utterly controlled.” —The Guardian
 
“The maniac energy of Kerouac pulses throughout the prose, but there is also a hallucinatory horror and hyper-realist constraint miraculously balanced in a manner which suggests the perfect fusion of Kafka and Kelman.” —Scotsman
 
“Demanding and rewarding, lyrical and vernacular, smart and entertaining.” —Times Literary Supplement
 
“Bristling with wit and invention, these tales are full of hair-brained schemes, hair-raising moments, and incredibly close shaves . . . tongue-twisting wordplay, clipped dialogue and well-groomed characters . . . These stories are all collector’s items.” —The Sunday Herald

“Stories of antler eaters, fish smokers and suburban psychopaths make up this often startling and always disturbing collection.” —Duncan McLean, author of Bunker Man

“One of the country’s finest writers.” —GQ
