Plot summary[edit]

A Small Killing is a novel which looks inward, examining the images of one man's inner world. The protagonist is an ad company executive looking for inspiration for his latest project. This character is rather the apotheosis of 1980s culture and serves as commentary of it. Seeking inspiration for the above-mentioned project he returns to his home town to confront his perceptions of the past and himself.
