To his dreams And what disturbing plan awaits him at the end of his journey Byron Easy is an epic baroue sprawling masterpiece of a novel a uniue portrait of love and marriage of the flux of memory and of England in the dying days of the twentieth century from a young British writer of exceptional promi Possibly the most annoying book I have read for a long time The narrator is both unreliable and completely unlikeable The story shifts backward and forwards telling the story of his miserable life Don't read this book if you have a tendency to depression as you will be suicidal by the end of the turgid long winded account

Byron EasyMemories both painful and euphoric of the recent past of his rollercoaster London life and most distressingly of Mandy his half Spanish ian wife in an attempt to make sense of his terrible and ordinary predicamentWhat has led him to this point Where are his friends his family his wife What has happened Very ambitious bildungsroman by a very clever but very undisciplined writer Linguistically inventive; clearly intelligent The story is about a failed poet in the aftermath of a failed relationship hitting a figurative bottom on Christmas Eve 1999 His marriage with the impossible and impossible to like Mandy is done and duster; he's broke and heading home to Leeds Every stage of the journey gives him ample opportunity to ruminate on his recent past and the distant past but I predict that no reader not a one will find it easy to sympathize because Mandy is such a hateful human being the uber shrew Cook is too eager to show off his remarkable knowledge of and gift with words but he is a talent for sure
