Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Told entirely in e-mails sent and received by Martin Davies, would-be author and frustrated corporate accountant, this debut novel is set on September 11, 2001, in Cardiff, Wales. In denial about his breakup with his girlfriend and baffled by the triviality of his life, Martin gossips online at his desk and makes plans for the weekend until—just after his crowd of young professionals returns from lunch—people start flying airliners into office buildings in New York City. Very funny and then brutally sad, Martin's messages by the time the day is over have run the gamut from nonsense straight out of  The Office to something closer to a play by Samuel Beckett.

Book Description: Poetry Wales Press, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 208 x 135 mm. Brand New Book. In Cardiff s offices and call centres the twenty-something white collar workers of the new sweatshops email each other with work issues, jokes, arrangements for their social lives, gossip and the products of sheer boredom. As the day passes, author Martin conducts this correspondence and saves in Drafts a variety of emails to himself - a commentary on his life. Martin is tired of customer services, in denial over breaking up with his girlfriend, worried about that incident in Bristol, and baffled by the triviality of his life and those of his drinking, recreational drug-taking friends. What is the plot he s supposed to be following? How has it come to this? When on this day, 11th September, 2001, people fly airliners into buildings, Martin knows he s reached a critical point in his life. He sends his final message.Told entirely through emails, part The Office, part Pinter, Eleven is a striking debut novel: smart, funny, brutally sad, and a genuine response to 21st century society in the UK and beyond. It iis likely to become a cult text for young people, disillusioned with society, across the UK. Bookseller Inventory # WBC9781854114150
