    PDF/EPUB Kevin Davey Ï Playing Possum Epub ↠ Ï playing pdf, possum mobile, Playing Possum PDF/EPUBPlaying Possum should be a book that makes me feel small and ignorant It’s only after I finished the novel that I discovered that it’s main character an American poet who murders his wife is actually a version of TS Eliot I’m simply not well read enough to have joined those dots For one up until 10 minutes ago I had no idea what the T and S stood for now I know There are other literary references ranging from Christie to Joyce Ulysses was published in 1922 and so was The Waste Land by TS Eliot The year is so important for the fiction that was published – and the reaction to that fiction such as Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway 1925 that earlier this year Bill Goldstein wrote a whole book about it The World Broke In TwoAlthough I didn’t pick these nods and winks some obvious than others I still really enjoyed Playing Possum With its fluid sense of time merging 1922 with 2012 as if to imply that the things change etc and its fascination with Chaplin
