Low Life
Macmillan, 2010. 1st printing 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. Fine unread copy. Limited Edition, this is number 27 of 150. SIGNED by author to title page. Synopsis: When Simon Johnson is attacked in his crummy LA apartment, he knows he must defend himself or die. Turning on the lights after the scuffle, Simon realises two things: one, he has killed his attacker; two, the resemblance of the man to himself is uncanny. Over the coming days, SimonÕs lonely life will spiral out of control. With his pet goldfish Francine in tow, he embarks on a gripping existential investigation, into his own murky past, and that of Jeremy Shackleford, the (apparently) happily married math teacher whose body is now lying in SimonÕs bathtub under forty gallons of ice. But Simon has a plan. Gradually, he begins to assume the dead manÕs identity, fooling ShacklefordÕs colleagues, and even his beautiful wife. However, when mysterious messages appear on the walls around SimonÕs apartment, he realises that losing his old self will be more difficult than heÕd imagined. Everything points to a long forgotten date the previous spring, when his life and ShacklefordÕs first collided. As the contradictions mount, and the ice begins to melt, the events of the past year will resolve themselves in the most catastrophic way. Combining gritty noir, psychological drama and dazzling plotting, Low Life is a shocking novel that announces Jahn as a brilliant new voice of modern America.
