Whose stories deserve to be told? And whose words should do the telling?In Felix Culpa, Jeremy Gavron conjures up a work of extraordinary literary alchemy: a novel made out of lines taken from a hundred great works of literature. It follows a writer on the trail of a boy recently released from prison, who has been discovered dead in the cold north, frozen and alone.

But in searching for the boy's story, will he lose his own?Magical and moving, Felix Culpa is a living demonstration of how storytelling works, by sound and by rhythm, by elision and by omission, as well as by reference and by allusion.

It asks what happens when we lose the narrative of our own life, and fall into someone else's.
