9781854114150: Eleven

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.

About the Author:

David Llewellyn is the author of short stories and comedy sketches for the BBC, and he collaborated on the feature-length filmscript Somewhere, performed live at the Cardiff Screen Festival in 2003.

Review:

"Llewellyn skillfully and poignantly reveals the complications and evasions of the characters' relationships . . . Eleven is a compulsive read, and I devoured it in one sitting, unable to put it down . . . It's easy to imagine this becoming a cult book for the disillusioned younger generation . . . who will recognize many of the characters and situations."  —Ray French, author, All This Is Mine and The Red Jag

"A micro-mezze of human emotion, Eleven thrusts snippets of love, trust, and disappointment into the mix and proves that the knock-on effects of petty office politics can be disastrous."  —Gay Times
