The Dimensions of a Cave
From Shelf: Fiction to get excited about Autumn 2023 (hardback)
The debut novel from one of Granta's Best of Young American Novelists: a virtuoso, metaphysical thriller and a modern day retelling of The Heart of Darkness.
When reporter Quentin Jones investigates a shadowy military programme during the desert war, he discovers cutting edge technology that simulates reality during interrogation. As the shadowy labyrinth of governmental corruption unfurls and tightens around him, unnerving links to his protege Bruce keep emerging, who disappeared into the war several years earlier. The Dimensions of A Cave is a haunting journey into networks of power and corruption, exploring our drive towards war and obsession with new technologies. A modern day retelling of Heart of Darkness, this masterful debut novel heralds a dazzling and singular voice in fiction.
