4 May 1970. It's a brilliant sunny morning after an April of heavy rain, and at the Concept House therapeutic community he has set up in the London suburb of Willesden, maverick psychiatrist Dr Zack Busner has been tricked into joining a decidedly ill-advised LSD trip with several of its disturbed residents. Five years later, sitting in a nearby cinema watching Steven Spielberg's Jaws with his young son, Busner realizes the true nature of the events that transported on that dread-soaked day, when a survivor of the worst disaster in the US Navy's history - the sinking of the USS Indianapolis in the shark-infested south Pacific - came face to face with the British Royal Air Force observer on the Enola Gray's mission to Hiroshima. Set a year before the action of his Booker-shortlisted Umbrella, Will Self's new novel weaves together multiple narratives across several decades of the twentieth century to produce a fiendish tapesty depicting the state we're enmeshed in.
