In this 1970 Booker Prize-winning novel, Norman is the clever one of a closely-knit Jewish family in London's East End. Infant prodigy, brilliant barrister, the apple of his parents' eyes--until at 41 he becomes a drug addict, confined to his bedroom, at the mercy of his hallucinations and paranoia.

Industry Reviews

She has a large compassion, and an intelligence which makes her compulsively readable. - NEW STATESMAN

Splendidly sane, compassionate and often grotesquely funny. - DAILY TELEGRAPH

The writing sparkles and flickers and blazes. - JEWISH CHRONICLE

The novel moves from intense emotion to humour and pathos to the frightening realisation that those who are surrounded by the insane quickly become insane themselves. Read it. - DARTS
