“Skin Cage” by Nico Laeser is an extraordinary and hugely rewarding story. Told from the perspective of a paralyzed young man the book has quite an ambitious premise and follows it through successfully.
Daniel Stockholm is not Danny, which is the name he has given his ‘skin cage’ or his biological prison. His mind sees himself differently and it is Daniel who tells us his gripping story.
The narrative is superb, intimate, honest and unique. The book is powerful, original and unlike any I have ever read. It shows a fascinating perspective on difficult issues and is thoughtful, thought provoking and thoroughly captivating. A great character and a good story.
Truly amazing, a must read.
