The Age of Anxiety: A Novel – The Times Bestseller


First conceived as an opera, ‘The Age of Anxiety’ deals with mythic and operatic themes including a maze, divine madness and long-lost children. Hallucinations and soundscapes haunt this novel, which on one level is an extended meditation on manic genius and the dark art of creativity. This is the debut novel by The Who’s lead guitarist, Pete Townshend.
