The Cry of the Sloth

By Sam Savage
ISBN 9780297856498
Category Humour
October 2009


Living on a diet of fried Spam, vodka, sardines and Southern Comfort, Andrew Whittaker is being sucked into the morass of middle age. A negligent landlord, small-time literary editor, and aspiring novelist, he is – quite literally – authoring his own downfall. From his letters and diary entries to grocery lists and posted signs, this novel is a collection of everything Whittaker commits to paper over four critical months.
