A London University philosophy graduate, Yosef-a Kurd-goes through an acrimonious divorce from his Western, feminist wife. A variant of Kafka's Joseph K., Joseph A. (Yosef Abu-Zwili) feels trapped in the maze of Western feminist web-an innocent sheep inhabiting a world populated by feminist wolves. 'Why sheep?' he asks. 'Ba ba ba ' he bleats, 'because I feel like one. Ba ba ba because I think I am one.' While in a London hospital ward, he writes his confessions, memoirs, reveries, and musings-'butterflies of the mind to be preserved as personal cameos'-for the benefit of the ignorant male. Hope for recuperation is lost in his dread of the ultimate knock on his door and imminent death. Terrified, he asks some philosophical questions: why has God created good and evil, male and female, sheep and wolves? 'Ba ba ba ' he bleats, as he hears a knock on his door and makes himself ready to be led out for a ceremonious execution by a Feminist High Priestess. A novel of ideas, literary allusions, and linguistic associations, Confessions of a Sheep for Slaughter aims to enlighten and entertain by exposing and satirizing the follies, absurdities, and little crimes of Feminists and Feminism.

Tales of America, adultery, football, incest, love, paranoia, sadism and Zionism.... Wickedly funny these stories may be, but heartless they are not. Disturbing images abound; like the loving family that feasts upon living butterflies; and other images that connect the themes with places deeper than the mind. The narrators are an extraordinary group: a berserk psychiatrist, a giraffe, a man with an invisible creature on his back, a Jewish private eye, a communist with a bowel fixation, and various other disillusioned souls. None the less, each story is lucid, concisely written and has a strong sense of location. In The Promised Land a diaspora Jew travels to Israel determined to plant his seed, only to find himself excluded from his erotic paradise. In Le Docteur Enchaîné, a London psychiatrist decides that he can only find satisfaction with a dumb woman and takes the remedy into his own hands. In The Luftmensh, Joshua Smolinsky, trailing a missing writer to New Orleans, becomes involved with ghosts from American and Jewish history. In A Moment of Happiness a Czech hypochondriac manipulates two tourists into providing him with 'that single 1/60th of a second when I am not afraid'.... Clive Sinclair has created a wryly alluring world in which the neuroti, the outsiders, become the spokesmen best equipped to deal with the hardness at its core. Like the surprising artichoke in the title piece, his stories have hearts of gold. "I found Hearts of Gold quite wonderful ... And all this despite my immense dislike for football, cunts and national movements of any kind. So it had to be a very good book ... and it was." Sir Angus Wilson "Evil, entertaining little fictions... Clive Sinclair is fluent, inventive, linguistically gifted" Victoria Glendinning, Sunday Times "Extremely sexy, wry, likeable, tortured, these stories crackle with talent" Jacky Gillott, The Times "Fireworks of all kinds explode in Clive Sinclair's first collection of short stories .... Hearts of Gold is remarkable" John Mellors, Listener
