A mosaic of affecting

'I often wish that I could take out the part of me that holds affection for others, not remove it, but present it in tangible presence to the target.' Nic Addenbrooke

Self Made Man

Hundreds is a razor-sharp mosaic, made up of 100 bits of flesh fiction that come together as a novel and as 100 stand-alone prose poems. This book carves out with a scalpel: nothingness, longing and fleeting connection. These are edgy existentialist meditations on personality becoming data.


Hundred’s precise use of language is exquisite alongside accompanying full colour images. Conceptually, I enjoyed it from the start with its non-chronological contents pages, an alphabetical listing of the one hundred distinct pieces that make up this body of work. This hand-made first book by Nic Addenbrooke is a beautiful labour of love.
