'Angry. Funny. Nightmarish. ArseHole-ish. Painful and sad ...a tremendously smart, darkly comic, and surprisingly moving tale of life in today's London. It will definitely get your head spinning. You may even discover it's your own life in print...''

Terry Gilliam

Danny Hickman will do whatever it takes to become a great artist. He escapes from a meaningless job by fabricating mental illness and he escapes from an equally meaningless art scene by fabricating tiny clay heads. But nothing seems to give him the freedom he craves.

A chance encounter with a Russian criminal followed by one of the more bizarre of Daniel's romantic failures leads him to an unusual and psychologically liberating evening with a prostitute which, in turn, leads to an emotional armageddon that threatens to literally obliterate him.

Drowning is Fine, is the tragi-comic coming-of-age story of Daniel Hickman, a young man struggling to survive as a sane man in love and an artist in dystopian London; goals which turn out to be two aspects of the same apocalyptic mission-to see the world as it is, in all its sordid beauty.
