Senseless

Paul Golding

Set against the backdrop of 1980s London, Senseless chronicles, through the jaded faculties of George, its narrator, a world which veers from dancing to desiring, from laughter to disaster, from recreational drugs to prescribed ones. At its core lie George's two principal relationships – with his brother, Kelly, whom he cannot seem to love; and with his best friend, Matthew, whom he loves like a true brother. Together George and Matthew confront shame and ignorance with indomitable spirit and dignity. Delivered with brutal elegance, Paul Golding's narrative is a search for sense itself.
