Ambition, part one

Rated 4.17/5 based on 6 reviews
Imagine a world where you are young, hot, hip – and published. Picture a long, hot summer in West London, literary prize shortlists, an alcoholic French agent you keep bumping into at random parties, priapic friends and vapid ex-girlfriends. Consider a life in which even the sight of your own reflection fills you with anxiety and where mirrors give you fear.

About NFH Walker

Since graduating from St. Andrews University six years ago I have kept myself busy working as in a major London advertising agency.

To give a brief flavour of my life, to date I have lived overseas in Shanghai, China, as an English Teacher, in New Jersey, USA as a Golf Caddie, and spend my early years in Muscat, Oman, where my father worked in the Oil Business when I was young.

I don't know what the other reviewer is talking about the cover. I think it's a sexy looking cover to go along with the story lines.

I think you'll like it ...

I'm not even a girl and I was offended by that cover. Stop writing about your fantasies and maybe you'll breech something worthwhile.

Wow, this shit is sic. From the start it's just the most crazy thing ever, love it, like the other guy says, it's like a early Bret Easton Ellis piece.

It's tight and slick, fast paced and darkly humourous. These kids really talk like I did back in college, chatting about girls and drinking beer.

Lookin forward to the next bit.

We've only been given the first 4 chapters of this so it's early days, we assume that the author actually has the rest of this to post (I am pretty sure he must) but already I think this is going in an interesting direction. It feels, already, a little bit like the literary equivalent of 'infinite mirrors' - when you hold one mirror up to another and look into it, an endless stream of reflections.

The book is about a young author 'making it', written by a young author (check out the bio picture) that wants to 'make it' - but the story is about that very same thing, an author who has written a book on publishing success, before he was succesful.

Confused? Don't worry about it, most of the first 4 chapters are just sex, drugs and parties with the occasional burst of acerbic dialogue, all narrated in the flat, first person prose style made famous by Bret Easton Ellis (at least to me).

Think about it like a Dr Peppeer - try it, you might like it...
