Struan Sinclair (b. ca 1972, Toronto). "Automatic World, the exhilarating debut novel by Struan Sinclair, is a subtle meditation on the way we think and the storieds we create to give our lives meaning. .Four strands spanning several generations are woven together through the fragmented consciousness of a patient in rehabilitation after an accident that leaves him stuck in present tense. Unable to recall who he is, where he is from, or who he knows, and determined to access his history, the patient harvests and assembles the narratives of his friends, family, and other witnesses. Out of this miscellany emerge surprising tales: of Merrick, an inventor who dreams of a clockwork universe; Dory, a girl who commits a mercy killing ata local hospice; Merle, whose repeated suicide attempts bind him to his es tranged son; and finally, the narrator's own elusive past. Between these threads is the story of a train crash and of three minutes lost - three minutes that will prove a turning point in the lives of all the characters caught in this intricate web." - from the dj Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 16.00
