The Take Over – signed Out of Series edition


Artist: Michael Hamburger
Date: 2000
Format: Chapbook

The Take-Over owes its origin to a dream experienced by the author some years ago – a nightmare described in his foreword as ‘recognizably relevant to changes in our social and public life… when the story was written.’ The setting is a capital city after a coup. The protagonist, a writer, is forbidden to write and instead is appointed court fool, answerable to secret service officers and the Director of the state, who devises for the writer a public function so inappropriate and bizarre that it drives him to the ultimate act of defiance.
