Nicholas Weir is exasperated by his job and his failing marriage. Eschewing them both, he seeks to claim back control of his life and embarks upon an intellectual odyssey in an attempt to better understand the world. Exploring a wide variety of Film and Literature, including the works of Friedrich Nietzsche, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Hermann Hesse, Jean-Paul Sartre, Aldous Huxley, Terry Eagleton and Czeslaw Milosz, he begins to strip away the thin veneer of civilisation to expose a society riddled with greed, inequality, deceit and hypocrisy. Unable to repress his anger and disgust, Nicholas ventures out onto the streets of London… Examining Social Theory, Religion, Evolution, Politics, the Benefits System, the European Union, and the 2008 Banking Crisis, 'Nicholas Enraged' is the chronicle of an outsider, a man who refuses to conform to received ideas and the general tenor of 21st Century society. Bursting at the seams with satire, surrealism, pitch black comedy and indignant polemics, it is also an outrageous, subversive, and profane work that challenges common literary conventions.
