The Underground Man by Mick Jackson

I finally started a Book Club (in January) and this quirky novel was our first pick. Great book - the main character was lots of fun. A child-like, geriatric aristocrat, "The Duke" is bewildered and fascinated by the workings of the world around him (which consists mostly of his home and a system of elaborate underground tunnels), and especially by the deterioration of his own body. The book chronicles his quest to get inside his own head ;)
The Duke's intricate comparisons between (and obsession with) maps and medical texts inspired my sketch.
More sketches to come as our Book Club progresses...
