His Story - A Novel Memoir - The life and times of Dick O'Tooleby Gray
Dick O'Toole is a rogue floundering
An original and unique literary tour-de-force, HIS STORY - A Novel Memoir - The Life and Times of Dick O'Toole is a blend of memoir, faction, fiction, and radical social and political history that is funny, tragic, playful, iconoclastic, and satirical. The revelations are profound, the humour is black, and the style is a breeze.
Dick O'Toole is a rogue floundering on the assault course of life. His attempts at making the world a better place and his 'doggedness' in defending the underdog invariably lead to anguish and failure, but our protagonist comes up smelling of roses. Readers are advised to fasten their seat belts: they're in for a wild ride.
"A remarkable work of literature. The writing is swirling and chaotic, rarely in one place, a terrific collision of ideas and images, memories and diatribes. Gray isn't afraid of playfulness. I like that in a writer. It shows good command. Make no mistake, we are in the hands of an accomplished writer - Glyn Parry" - Townsville Bulletin, March 2013
"Everything of Nigel Gray's I have read is humane and linguistically melodic" - Kurt Vonnegut
"Nigel Gray is a writer of great force and real moral power" - Malcolm Bradbury
