Synopsis

A Method Actor's Guide to Jekyll and Hyde by Kevin MacNeil

After a bike crash in a foggy Edinburgh, troubled young actor Robert Lewis wakes to find that life has changed for the darker. And the weirder. He's still a deceitful egoist but now life seems to be deceiving and manipulating him. Everything that can go wrong is going wrong. He's losing control of his love life, his starring role in a new adaptation of Jekyll and Hyde, and, quite possibly, his mind. A Method Actor's Guide to Jekyll and Hyde is a dark, maniacal thriller that explores many kinds of duality - individual, social and cultural, and is a heartfelt tale about the search for belonging and the nature of love and desire. It is also bloody funny.

If Kevin MacNeil gets any more talented I'm going to kill him and eat him to steal his juju
Denise Mina

'A novel with real spirit, whose honest bleakness is outdone by its sheer good humour and energy'
Ali Smith

'Maniacally amusing ... a novel of consistently hilarious verbal invention'
The Independent
