The Insult by Rupert Thomson

Rupert Thomson

A decade in the future, a retired journalist living in a remote coastal town has decided to write his memoirs. The book is an account of how he coped with the loss of his son in one of the first terrorist attacks on London. But as he starts writing, strange things happen: a message service starts up where people can leave messages for him; memories start to come back; and he finds himself increasingly drawn into the world of his own novel - and then out of it.This is a darkly funny novel that explores what happens when an author becomes trapped inside their own work and find themselves unable to escape.
