The gloriously witty, hugely ambitious and compulsively readable novel from award-winning writer Adam Mars-Jones.
Cedilla continues the story of John Cromer; one of the most memorable and delightful characters in contemporary literature. In Cedilla our physically - challenged hero launches himself into the worlds of international travel, spiritual enlightenment and higher education, tackling friendships and sex and railing against institutional regulations and flights of stairs along the way. Cedilla is a wholly original and exhilarating novel by one of our brightest literary talents.
Adam Mars-Jones' first book of stories, Lantern Lecture, was published in 1981 and won a Somerset Maugham Award. In 1983 and again in 1993 he was named one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists, despite not having produced a novel at the time. His Zen status as an acclaimed novelist without a novel was dented by the appearance of The Waters of Thirst, and it can only suffer further with the appearance of Pilcrow and Cedilla.
