Product Information

Originally published in 1954, Trocchi's first novel is an existential thriller set on board a barge travelling along the canal that runs between Glasgow and Edinburgh. What plot there is revolves around the discovery of a corpse of a young woman found floating in the canal. As tensions develop between the narrator of the story - who discovers the body and whose relationship with the dead woman gradually unfolds - and the couple with whom he shares the cramped space on the barge, the reader is slowly sucked into the disturbed psyche of Trocchi's rootless anti-hero.
