Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2012
Could modernity be an illness? Umbrella follows the story of Audrey Dearth, who fell victim to the encephalitis lethargic sleeping sickness epidemic at the end of the First World War and has been in a coma ever since. Arriving at the asylum she still lingers in, maverick psychiatrist Zack Busner becomes involved in an attempt to bring her back to life - with wholly unforeseen consequences.

This is a great book - I have already recommended it to my Dad and a chap I met in a coffee shop the other day
The private musings of the main character are my favourite aspects, you really feel like you are inside his head
The scene when the Doctor goes to see Albert
Yes it is very poignant - I laughed out loud and was subdued by the ending
Will Self must be very pleased with the bloke who reads this book - he totally brings it to life - loved him - the voices were spot on
