'The Changing Face of Consumerism' could be considered to be the equivalent of Roland Barthes' 'Mythologies' for the Facebook / Credit Crunch generation. Based on a series of blog posts penned... More > between 2007 and 2013, 'The Changing Face of Consumerism' charts one man's experience of a rapidly evolving consumer culture during the credit crunch and recession years. The Changing Face of Consumerism presents a snapshot of an eventful time in modern history, from the demise of MySpace and the local record store, to the rise of the Kindle and the resurgent popularity of home-brewed beer. Ponderous, insightful, wry and sometimes splenetic, Nosnibor's writing is sharp and keenly observed, making The Changing Face of Consumerism an essential read for anyone with an interest in the effects of late capitalism on day-today life.< Less

A riot of experimentation, The Plagiarist is an example of contemporary theory in practice, melding Bloom's theories on influence to a series of unreliable or schizophrenic narrators against a backdrop created by Frederic Jameson.

From Destinations Set By Christopher Nosnibor
eBook (PDF): $3.10
Tim and Anthony are very different people, leading very different lives, following different careers in different cities. Tim is a conformist: office job, moderately successful, and teetering on the... More > brink of a premature midlife crisis. Anthony is a rebellious non-conformist: a writer who sneers at the humdrum and derides ‘corporate sell-outs.’ But are they really so very different? The two narratives of From Destinations Set trace these characters’ activities as they occur in parallel – not only in terms of time, but also literally, with the page divided into two columns with one story in the left, the other in the right. As events and personalities unravel in each of the two separate stories, the similarities, rather than the differences, become apparent. But more than this, as the two plots develop, questions are raised as to precisely who’s writing the script: is Tim’s dislocation symptomatic of his breakdown, or is there some connection between him and Anthony?< Less

Ben and Stuart are old friends. Having known one another since school, they’ve grown up together and remained friends into adulthood. But now into their thirties, their lives have taken very... More > different paths, and they’re now very different people, leading very different lives, following different careers. Ben is a conformist: office job, moderately successful, and teetering on the brink of a premature midlife crisis. Stuart is a rebellious non-conformist, a lifelong student and a writer who sneers at the humdrum and derides corporate sell-outs. At the heart of this radical novel that dismantles the very notion of 'the novel' lies a thought-provoking work that challenges notions of authorship and the distinctions that separate theory, criticism, fiction and memoir, there lies a touching tale of midlife anxiety in the postmodern age of late capitalism and information overload.< Less
