A dopamine-enhanced PORTERHOUSE BLUE ... raw and unexpurgated humour ... such a determinedly extraordinary book.' - The Morning Star. A biting comedy of love, desperation and existence THE DECONSTRUCTION OF PROFESSOR THRUB offers a thrilling ride into the world of a major new writer. A young student tracks the biography of Elsie Stewart from her job as a London maid and to the Spanish Civil War. The story hurtles back into the maelstrom of Ukrainian revolutions, while the narrator is caught in the academic anguish of his university supervisor, the sublimely comic Professor Thrub. True love is tough too, as a young poet leads him through Europe on her own wayward quest. This is a novel that explodes with ideas and characters and events. It's a brazen campus comedy, a medical drama, a radical romp through modern philosophy and twentieth century history, and a cheery ride through the nature of the Scottish Highlands. 'A great book. And very, very funny.' - Georgina Godwin, Monocle Radio.
