Notice: A Novel

By (author): Geoffrey Brown

This desperate rant from a man struggling through a lonely and fragmented existence uses the power and rhythm of the English language in a new way. Geoffrey Brown draws readers into his world with its poetic moments and spurts about the decay of everyday life in Notice: A Novel.

In Notice, Geoffery Brown creates a curious and terrifying world in which the characters remain nameless and faceless throughout. Their motivations are a mystery-we are exposed only to highly neurotic situations that we can’t possibly understand, but that we can relate to with a surprising familiarity. Geoffery Brown has created a fascinating narrative style that grips your emotions from the first passage.
