The Man on the Middle Floor

paperback    ISBN 13: 9781910453544 | ISBN 10: 1910453544

Mark Haddon meets Elizabeth Haynes in this unforgettable debut novel.
 
Despite living in the same three-flat house in the suburbs of London, the residents are strangers to one another. The bottom floor is home to Tam, a recent ex-cop who spends his days drowning his sorrows in whisky. On the middle floor is Nick, a young man with Asperger’s that likes to stick to his schedules and routines. The top floor belongs to Karen, a doctor and researcher that has spent her life trying to understand the rising rates of autism. They have lived their lives separately, until now, when an unsolved murder and the man on the middle floor connect them all together.
 
Told from three points of view, The Man on the Middle Floor is about disconnection in all its forms; sexual, physical, parental and emotional. It questions whether society is meeting the needs of the fast growing autistic section of society, or exacerbating it.
 
Thought-provoking and thrilling, The Man on the Middle Floor will leave readers talking.
