Keefie By Ken Champion
Paperback: $9.86
Prints in 3-5 business days
After his widely acclaimed novella, The Dramaturgical Metaphor, an existential thriller which sees psychoanalyst James Kent embark on a dark and disturbing European journey, Champion’s new... More > offering, Keefie, occupies very different territory. Opening amongst the narrow, grimy, tree-free streets of 1930s East London where his titular hero is growing up and making sense of his world in the run-up to war, Champion brilliantly captures the claustrophobic life of work, traditional gender roles and family amongst the white working class that once dominated these neighbourhoods, deploying his mastery of conversation to powerful effect as he anatomises the rules, restrictions and unspoken resentments that define a tightly bounded, long lost world. A second narrative, initially located in New York, collides with the first in rural East Anglia which sees a blue collar lecturer on an intellectual journey that probes identity and the inherent contradictions between nature and nurture.< Less

More > claustrophobic life of work, traditional gender roles and family amongst the white working class that once dominated these neighbourhoods, deploying his mastery of conversation to powerful effect as he anatomises the rules, restrictions and unspoken resentments that define a tightly bounded, long lost world. A second narrative, initially located in New York, collides with the first in rural East Anglia which sees a blue collar lecturer on an intellectual journey that probes identity and the inherent contradictions between nature and nurture. Once again, Champion has produced a clever novel that is both distinctive and profoundly unsettling, exposing the emotional emptiness of both the superficially cheery cockney culture and the loquacious, self- regarding grove of academe.< Less
The Dramaturgical Metaphor By Ken Champion
eBook (ePub): $7.03
‘If you’re expecting to read titles of comparative texts by well known writers littered throughout a tribute to Ken Champion, you are mistaken - he’s not that kind of writer. The... More > author is rare amongst his peers in social and literary relevance for he can present the lost, the mistaken, the sophistication doggedly clung to in despair and bring into being the deepest, unspoken tenderness. Following the psycho-geography of much of Urban Narratives, a story collection whose exploration of themes and ideas are broadened into similarly disturbed planes in The Dramaturgical Metaphor, Champion introduces a protagonist randomly and artfully directing Kundera-esque scenarios across Europe to escape from a damaged ego while searching for an idealised one. This new novella is not only to be admired for its style and pace, but to be felt, to be angry at.’< Less
