Window on a Burning Man

He wasn’t looking for convention, but he’s learning there are limits!

When a middle-aged British man meets a charming New Yorker with a passion for photography, he thinks he might have found what he’s looking for. But she lets slip a secret and everything changes, forcing him to confront her past and try to understand the choices she’s made. Seeking answers but filled with self-doubt, he plunges into the world of Brooklyn’s artists where relationships don’t follow the normal rules, and third-wave feminists join misfit hipsters in an annual pilgrimage to Burning Man. But the more he discovers, the more questions arise. Why did she leave Moscow and move to America? Why did she divorce a husband she loved? And why is she sticking with him, a man with a complicated past of his own?

Provocative, funny and refreshingly honest, this is a story of an ordinary man in love with a very modern woman.

  1. You need to get the graun to pan it as part of the emerging genre of alt-right “dick lit” for pale stale males, lashing back at their being rendered redundant by history. Will drive sales through the roof.

    Exactly! My best hopes lie in legions of purple-headed feminists burning this book en masse in the middle of Brooklyn.

  3. The design work is pretty slick. Who did that for you?

    These guys.

    The idea for the theme was mine, though. God knows how I came up with it, normally I have no imagination for visuals.

  4. I’m baggsying Bartholomew with an each way on Bryn (due to your poor choice of nationality).

    Heh! My parents are English: no Welsh names in our family.

  5. Brinsley?

    I want hardback and I may well give it away as a gift to a few people. The cover is cool!

    Screaming harpies the very best publicity. Look what has happened to Prof. Jordan B. 🙂 Peterson

  6. I want hardback and I may well give it away as a gift to a few people.

    Alas, I’m not doing a hardback: happy that you might want more than one copy though! 🙂

  7. Why is there a wedding ring on her finger?

    Dunno. It’s on her right hand, which is correct if she’s Russian…but where would a Russian wear it if she were marrying an American in New York? See, it’s already getting mysterious!

  8. You has a cover? As a former designer, I am always impressed.

    You know that old line about “never judge a book by its cover” well it is bollox. I always do, and I love a good cover.

    Buy, buy!

  9. The odds of guessing are about the same as winning the lottery!

    And that list doesn’t even include Bismarck! As in, du Plessis. Not my name, though.

  10. Ooh, let’s play spot the middle name.

    I think Barracuda is good, but then so is Bunny but if you have English parents, they might have been keen on Brixton.

  11. Those fingers seem a bit, well, chubby.

    Report to me after class for a lecture on fat-shaming!

  12. Who could fail to appreciate a cover featuring a Zenit TTL?

    A similar KMZ camera also appears in a (reversed) picture on ‘thetrainline.com’ website. All very heartening in this digital age.

  13. Who could fail to appreciate a cover featuring a Zenit TTL?

    Is that what it is? That’s perfect: the female protagonist is Russian, and I bet this is pure coincidence! Good spot, Barney!

  14. My money’s on Tim Burkhard Newman having some hidden German ancestry. Anyway, looking forward to the eBook, good work mate.

  15. You beat me to it Barney, the Zenit was the first thing I noticed. Very useful in a dodgy situation when swung from the strap due to their sheer weight.

    Thinking about it, that would make a nice plot element…….

  16. “Report to me after class for a lecture on fat-shaming!”

    If you can deploy David Thompson’s hench lesbians, it’s a deal.

  17. “Who could fail to appreciate a cover featuring a Zenit TTL?”

    Thankyou Barney, I was trying to work it out!
