The Actual Whole of Music
Emanating from the blackout to move across the water came a desultory flotilla of youth: a saucy and outrageous convoy, unsure of their past, unknowing of their future, aping and japing their way through a reconfiguring world.
Amongst them was the author of this officially-requested memoir, whose story – a series of defining relationships, each seemingly prescribed – leaves notions of personal agency forever in question.
The Actual Whole of Music is a novel of astonishing power and originality, a reminder that – suspended dust-like and illuminated only in the momentary flash of life – we are relentlessly displaced by forces around, before and after us.
