Retreating from an airborne virus with a uniquely unsettling symptom, property developer Jason escapes London for his country estate, where he is forced to negotiate a new way of living with an assortment of fellow survivors. Far in the future, an isolated community of descendants continue to farm this same estate. Among their most treasured possessions are a few books, including a copy of Jane Eyre, from which they have constructed their hierarchies, rituals and beliefs.
At first glance, The Male Gaze is cheerful dick-lit. If you can cope with the gloriously ridiculous series of coincidences, and a few garish stereotypes of Hollywood hippies, then Joe Treasure rewards the reader with a fast-paced plot and wry humour. English bloke, stuck in LA, feeling detached from his wife, meets vivacious American woman for out-of-character adventures. Some of the characters are delicately observed: the sink or swim attitude of the foreigner abroad is beautifully demonstrated by David and his wife who flounder in this superficial culture while his attempts to cope with the mounting hysteria disrupting his world become more desperate.
I was the sixth child in a family of nine. My older sister Mary often had to supervise us younger ones. I drew heavily on my LA experience for my first book The Male Gaze. I gave my visiting Englishman a British wife quite unlike Leni, but even her family assumed it was really all about her. My second book, Besotted, was about two brothers who are exploring their Irish roots and fall in love with the same girl. The girl was imaginary but the brothers were modelled on me and my young brother Wilfrid.
