About this product
- DescriptionExploding with unfolding pages and multiple directions, Kapow! is a new book by British writer Adam Thirlwell. Set in the thick of the Arab Spring, it is guided by the high-speed mologue of an unnamed narrator - over-doped, over-caffeinated, overweight - trying to make sense of this history in real time. A clever, funny, and bitingly critical cultural commentary, it uses spinning digressions to tell the stories of a group of interconnected characters in London and Egypt, each transformed by the idea of revolution. Kapow! asks readers to open and unfold pages, to follow text leaking in and out of paragraphs, while progressively becoming part of and lost within the narrator's giddy digressions. A beautifully crafted object told in Thirlwell's uniquely acrobatic voice, this is a visually immersive storytelling experience like other.
- Author BiographyAdam Thirlwell is the author of two novels, Politics and The Escape, and a book on the international art of the novel. He is the guest editor of an issue of McSweeney's magazine, to come out in Winter 2012. He lives in London.
