A Thing of the Moment

A Thing of the Moment

Author(s): Bruno Noble

Location(s): Tokyo, London, Oxford

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): 1970s to 1990s

A novel written from the points of view of three women with the subject, besides telling the stories of how they grow up and meet, the nature of the self, or of identity.

It takes its title from Straw Dogs, a book by John Gray, the English political philosopher, in which he wrote, “The I is a thing of the moment, and yet our lives are ruled by it. We cannot rid ourselves of this inexistent thing.” What a provocative thing to say!
