Dominic da Silva, in his past due fifties, has terminal melanoma. This prognosis activates him to come to the diaries he stored from his boarding university years into his early thirties. those notebooks conjure misplaced tableaux of england within the Sixties, 70s and early 80s: with the emotional repression and genteel rural poverty of his early life, via to upbeat debts of later pleased extra and profound friendship.

Dominic has the chameleon features of the real survivor: through the age of thirty, he has carved out a promising occupation and is married to a filthy rich younger attorney, herself the very epitome of upward mobility. yet he’s cursed, it sort of feels, through short of every thing to which he’s supremely ill-suited.
A area of a century later, all of it appears very various. His has, in lots of methods, been a thwarted life, and Dominic’s diaries chart his lurching trip in the direction of self attractiveness– from grand residence events to a hostel for the homeless, from an it appears ideal existence to arrest and ignominy.

Under the Table is a strong homage to fact and friendship – and a popularity of the sturdiness upon which either depend.
