A new take on the concept that Nietzsche introduced through his madman character, only this exposé is not on the Christian God but on humanity. The 27-year-old, unemployed Mark Doyle, hoping to finally win a fantastical life through a few family connections, relocates to Strasbourg. He spends there almost half a year, succeeding in gaining wealth, romance and exotic friends. At the end, however, he is filled with disillusionment, resentment and loathing toward all people, as their tragedies, their aspirations and desires always had an element of independence from him—a cruel revolution in his eyes.

 

This novel is an attempt to explore how and what can be wanted and the eventual insufficiency of having anything. I incorporated many diverse characters, foreign and magnificent settings but at the same time it is written from Mark’s point of view, which is critical and has no dazzling objects of desire to disorient the readers, instead, even when grand schemes are unraveled and exhilarating events take place, the reader is bound to look out at those things from this internal position.
