'A man called Berg, who changed his name to Greb, came to a seaside town
intending to kill his father...'


So begins Ann Quin's first novel, a debut 'so
staggeringly superior to most you'll never forget it - The Guardian.'

Alistair Berg, hair
restorer, shares a mistress with his father. He will, he decides, eliminate his rival.
After mutilating a ventriloquist's dummy, he finds himself accidentally seduced by the
man he needs to kill. Mordant, heady, dark, Berg is Quin's masterpiece, a classic of
post-war avant-garde British writing.

'A mixture of the surreal, the whimsical and the macabre[...]Berg is funny and
profound, and intensely of its time' - Ian Patterson, London Review of Books
