Hallucinating Foucault is a love story, depicting the love between writer and reader in all its frightening intensity. Paul Michel is a literary master, a revolutionary writer who inspires his Reader with such devotion that he embarks on the strangest of quests: to liberate Paul Michel from the brutal system in which he's been incarcerated for the past ten years. But Michel is also a Reader, and his love for his lost Mentor has driven him into a mad, violent world, into which his Reader is gradually drawn, and from which there is no escape.

Review quote

Hallucinating Foucault was one of the best novels of its year... It is a thriller, a romance and a critique of dryness...Ever since I read it, I have been encouraging everyone else to do so * A.S. Byatt * Electrically charged and thoroughly engaging * Sunday Times * An elegant novel of ideas with real passion and emotional power * Independent *
