Platform

An unusual course of action after the protagonist's father's death, in which the First World meets the Third World, kicking off some feather-ruffling action.
What does it mean to live in a world without belief or consolation? Is Western civilisation in decline? Is there a silver lining? The answers are hidden in numbing experiences and morbid places. What else would you expect from one of European literature's chief provocateurs?
