‘I am not a man. I am a hat stand,’ says Chris Killen’s hero Will in The Bird Room, as he stands naked in a bedroom with a woman’s hat hanging on his erection. So begins the tale of a man who meets Alice, falls in love, and then finds himself in a hall of mirrors in which characters mutate and multiply. John Wray is being similarly applauded in the USA. Granta magazine named him as one of its Best of Young American Novelists: Lowboy is his story of an odyssey beneath New York.
