THE COLDNESS OF OBJECTS

PANAYOTIS CACOYANNIS

“A gay man questions Britain’s repressive new political regime in this satirical, speculative novel…

Panayotis Cacoyannis tells a story that feels both fresh and alarming in how it identifies and amplifies concerns of our time, as when it shows life becoming anodyne as a consequence of surveillance…  For the author, love is the antidote to a complicit society rendered indifferent to authoritarian rule… elegant and tenderly observant prose captures how individual lives interconnect…. Cacoyannis has written a thoroughly gripping novel, using the rhetoric of a real-life pandemic to fashion a chilling vision of an abnormal ‘new – normal’ to come.

An intriguing, timely, and terrifying portent of life after Covid – 19”
