There is nothing interesting about Ray Eccles. He knows it himself. On the morning of his fortieth birthday, he goes for a walk because hes just learned of a dormant Second World War explosive offshore, and hes the kind of man who thinks a bomb might be good company. As he gazes at the sea, a woman in the distance suddenly turns to face himand a dying seagull falls from the sky, knocking him unconscious.

When Ray wakes up, hes inexplicably compelled to paint the womans image, obsessively and repeatedly: initially on any paper he can find in his house, and thereafter on the walls, using any materials that come to hand, including food and bodily fluids. Discovered by a power couple of Outsider Art, he becomes one of the most celebrated artists of the century, and soon even small-town newspapers are covering his workwhich is how Jennifer, the woman on the beach, discovers shes the subject of the paintings that have set the world on fire, leading her to wonder if a man shes never met is the only person who has ever really seen her.

Man with a Seagull on His Head is a novel about the impossibility of ever really knowing anyone, and the electric charge that comes from real if unexpected connection. Beautiful, lyrical, and strangely moving, it heralds a wonderful and original new voice.
