Book Synopsis

"Shirker, Chad Taylor's first ever novel published in the UK, is a compelling and disturbing literary thriller set in downtown Auckland. Ellerslie Penrose is a man dealing in futures who becomes lost in the past.

Penrose's descent into the underworld is compulsive and chaotic - and the further he falls, the less he understands. But it is only through this descent that he can finally find what he is looking for.
Surreal and labyrinthine, Shirker's cool and enthralling prose establishes Chad Taylor as one of New Zealand's finest voices."

'''Available in French, Italian and German translations / Also released in the UK: http://www.chadtaylor.co.nz/ss.html'''
