The Towers The Fields The Transmitters

The Towers The Fields The Transmitters

A businessman experiences a breakdown when he arrives in the town of St Andrews on the east coast of Scotland in order to audit a military air base. Obsessed by his estranged daughter, who he believes is walking the streets at night, the unnamed businessman starts to look to art and ritual in order to redeem this new reality, even as time itself appears out of joint, as old WWII fighters appear in the skies and his twin brother, his double or personal daemon, wreaks havoc in his name.

The Towers The Fields The Transmitters is a magical novel that channels the surreal paranoia of Kafka, Burroughs, Bolaño and Philp K. Dick, while asking big questions about the nature of art, its ability to re-frame reality, and its moral culpability in aestheticizing suffering and despair. Written in a high-octane style and with a visionary sleight of hand that digs deep textual tunnels between Xstabeth and itself, The Towers The Fields The Transmitters is the next stage in Keenan’s radical re-thinking of the possibilities of the modern novel.
