9781608640836: A Certain Kind of Light

Told through the eyes of a nameless teenage boy, A Certain Kind of Light sees the narrator attempt to find some kind of cohesion in a life from which he feels increasingly disconnected. As his family, friendships, sexuality and even his taste in music and pornography begin to feel distant from him, his alienation expands. The things that once meant everything to him are stripped of an essence he begins to doubt they ever had. He fixates on a profile of a boy that he finds on the Internet, projecting illusory ideas upon a person that he has never met but feels a profound intimacy with. Feeling more and more lost, he attempts to work out the connection between a disparate set of coincidences, objects and events: a dead, mangled bird, the funeral of his best friend s father, a horrific experience with LSD, obsessive sexual fantasies and the disintegrating suburban life in which he was raised. Intensely emotional and disorientating, A Certain Kind of Light focuses on the intricacies of confusion.

About the Author:

Thomas Moore s writing has appeared in various publications in Europe and America and he is a regular contributor to The Fanzine. His novella, GRAVES, and his collection of poetry, The Night Is An Empire, were both published by Kiddiepunk. A Certain Kind of Light is his first novel.

Review:

Thomas Moore is one of my very favorite contemporary fiction writers. His first novel A Certain Kind of Light is easily the most extraordinary, momentous work yet by this singular and sublime wordsmith. --Dennis Cooper
