    'A man called Berg, who changed his name to Greb, came to a seaside town
    intending to kill his father...'

    So begins Ann Quin’s first novel, a debut 'so
    staggeringly superior to most you'll never forget it — The Guardian.'

    Alistair Berg, hair
    restorer, shares a mistress with his father. He will, he decides, eliminate his rival.
    After mutilating a ventriloquist’s dummy, he finds himself accidentally seduced by the
    man he needs to kill. Mordant, heady, dark, Berg is Quin’s masterpiece, a classic of
    post-war avant-garde British writing.

    'A mixture of the surreal, the whimsical and the macabre[...]Berg is funny and
    profound, and intensely of its time' — Ian Patterson, London Review of Books
