MAN WITHOUT A SHADOW


MAN WITHOUT A SHADOW

JOYCE CAROL OATES    Book Number: 85104    Product format: Paperback

A novel which 'opens in psychological thriller territory but develops into a subtler, more melancholic examination of the ways in which we define ourselves in terms of our work and relationships.' - Independent. In 1965 a young research scientist name Margot Sharpe is introduced to Elihu Hoopes, an attractive, charismatic amnesiac whose short-term memory has been devastated by a brief illness. By dedicating her professional life to him, Margot establishes for herself an exceptional career in the rapidly expanding field of neuroscience. But where is the line between scientific endeavour and personal obsession? Is Margot exploiting Eli? Are the experiments conducted on him ethical? Do we feel sorry for Margot, desperately in love with a man who will never remember her? Oates leaves us to ponder these questions long after finishing this darkly erotic novel examining the mysteries of our brains and minds. 369pp in paperback.
