Joseph is trying to focus on a plumbing job he is doing for his wife's friend, but is distracted by the terrible things that have been happening within his family. Joseph believes that his son has tried to kill his wife. Joseph is afraid he will do so again. Joseph is also terrified that his wife is going to leave him - and that he himself may not even get through the day. Insignificance, James Clammer's first novel for adults, unfurls over the course of a single day. Placing the reader right inside the head of its struggling narrator, it works double time, both as an act of empathy - a taste of the uncertainty and awkwardness of one vulnerable man, and his relationship with the world - and also as a tense, emotional and gripping drama.
