Book of the Dead
This is the story of a week in the life of Felix Post. Felix is a depressed twenty-nine year old novelist with a writer’s block. He fills the emptiness of Amsterdam’s jet set life with all kinds of alcohol and drugs.
Moreover, he is madly in love with a woman who’s pregnant with someone else. To make matters worse, the yearly Christmas dinner with his family is coming up.
With empathy and flair, Philip Huff describes the decline and the resurrection of his alter ego. In this novel, the great struggles of Huff’s generation blend in a stifling cocktail of sex, drugs, and lost illusions.
