Jock McLeish, failed husband, lover and businessman is alone in a hotel
room, drinking whisky, fantasising about sex and contemplating suicide.
As he tries to distance himself from reality, his lonely,
alcohol-fuelled fantasies are interrupted by a flood of memories,
reminding him of his own shortcomings. An unforgettably imaginative
book, deeply experimental in its form and charged with a dark humour,
1982, Janine is a searing portrait of male need and inadequacy.
Gray's exploration of politics, religion, powerlessness and pornography has lost none of its power to shock and entertain.
