The Late Hector Kipling is dark comedy at its best. The book follows Hector, a man with no internal boundries, moral or otherwise, through the London art world. There he finds an environment which gives no external boundries; reward and failure happen seemingly at random/5.   The Late Hector Kipling is, in part, about death, but not actually the death of its title character - not his literal death, if I can give that much away. Kipling is a successful painter whose renown falls somewhere between that of his friends Lenny Snook, an installation artist nominated for the Turner Prize, and Kirk Church, a struggling 5/5(5). Hector is the frazzled and unraveling narrator in THE LATE HECTOR KIPLING, the debut novel of British actor David Thewlis. It is the story of a middle-age crisis but not one for the weak of heart; it’s a gritty, messy, manic tale about a man quickly losing his bearings. It all seems to start with a painting by Edvard Munch. Hector is.
