"Tells of a young man frustrated by the inability of his two chosen courses of study, biology and literature, to adequately define the world. Baffled by several life-shaping coincidences that seem to be part of life itself, he embarks on a physical and intellectual journey in search of a girl he fell in love with years earlier. This journey leads him to a deserted island off the coast of Ireland and, perhaps, to the mythical Garden of the Hesperides, home of the Tree of Life."--Back cover
Imago bird by Nicholas Mosley( Book )

16 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in English and French and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This vivid and strikingly witty novel examines the contradictions between the public face and the private experience. Nephew to the prime minister of England, eighteen-year-old Bert tries to make sense of the grown-up world around him, a colorful crowd of teleevision personalities, politicians, Young Trotskyites, pop stars , and eccentric relatives. With the help of his laconic psychoanalyst, Bert questions the relation between exterior and interior reality, while Mosley himself questions art's ability to convey these different realities. Both Bert and Mosley triumph over these challenges by the end of this engaging and innovative novel, part of a series of interlocking novels concerning the fortunes of the six protagonists of Mosley's Catastrophe Practice"--Book jacket

Serpent by Nicholas Mosley( Book )

11 editions published between 1981 and 2000 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jason is a scriptwriter working on a film about Masada--the fortress where a thousand Jews killed themselves rather than be taken by the Romans in A.D. 73. Jason doubts that a film both honest and popular on such a subject can be made. The story of Serpent takes place on the airplane taking a party of VIP film people to Israel--the producer, two stars, production assistants, and Jason--with Jason's wife and child in tourist class. The dispute about the film--concerning the nature of loyalty, of sacrifice for the good of society--runs parallel with an actual drama that unfolds on the plane: between Jason, his wife Lilia, a man she befriends (who may or may not be a hijacker), and the show-business people in first class. A climax is reached in which the conflicts on the plane, Jason's fanciful ideas for a script on Masada, memories of his past life, and a contemporary crisis in Israel all seem to run parallel and even nudge one another--at least in imagination. The plane comes down to earth..."--Book jacket

Inventing God by Nicholas Mosley( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hafiz is a twenty-five-year-old Muslim doing post-graduate work in genetics at the University of Beirut. He is one of a team working on the possibility of fashioning a biological weapon that would be effective against some ethnic groups and not others. This project seems to him impossible, but still highly dangerous." "Lisa is a sixteen-year-old Israeli girl who feels threatened by the Jewish insistence on dwelling on memories of the Holocaust. She looks for a way out to a future." "Maurice Rotblatt is a middle-aged ex-television-guru who comes to the Middle East and calls for a plague on all ethnic and religious belligerants. He then disappears. His friends in England wonder - is he a victim? A trickster? Or has he left hints about some hope for a future?" "The story ends in September 2001. It is by the capacity to understand the interweaving actions and aspirations of many different characters - in Lebanon, Israel, Turkey, England - that there might be a chance, it seems, for humans to be nudged out of their self-destructive genetic and environmental conditioning."--Jacket
