Fiction. In an obsessive monologue vaguely after the manner of Thomas Bernhard, a socially inept writer, in an attempt to deflate or defeat the humiliation of seeking to impress the smooth-talking, self-important sorts of people he loathes but envies, tries to get to the bottom of an embarrassing incident from his childhood, with entertaining but refreshingly anti-climactic non-results. In THE QUIDDITY OF DELUSION, both barrels of Nicholls' word-gun are, as always, loaded, and the ego gets it hard in the nads.
M.J. Nicholls is the author of THE 1002ND BOOK TO READ BEFORE YOU DIE, THE QUIDDITY OF DELUSION, THE HOUSE OF WRITERS, and A Postmodern Belch. He lives in Glasgow.Author City: GLASGOW SCO
