Set in London, Paris, and Munich in the 1940s and 1950s, Exquisite Corpse is, like Irwin's cult classic, The Arabian Nightmare, a novel about the strange and ever-morphing powers of the imagination. At once a love story, a mystery, and an investigation into the ideas of absurdist art, "Irwin's novel about English surrealism is funny and profound and hugely satisfying" (A. S. Byatt, Sunday Times)show more

Review quote

"An off-beat, brisk, and darkly comic novel. Robert Irwin is a deft writer with a fine ironic touch...his novel, in which fiction and reality are woven unobtrusively together, is consistently clever and inventive."show more
