Traumatized by an accident which 'involved something falling from
the sky' and leaves him eight and a half million pounds richer but
hopelessly estranged from the world around him, Remainder's hero
spends his time and money obsessively reconstructing and
re-enacting vaguely remembered scenes and situations from his past:
a large building with piano music in the distance, the familiar
smells and sounds of liver frying and spluttering, lethargic cats
lounging on roofs until they tumble off them... But when this fails
to quench his thirst for authenticity, he starts re-enacting more
and more violent events, as his repetition addiction spirals out of
control. A darkly comic meditation on memory, identity and history,
Remainder is a parable for modern times.
