A residence in Order was once Nigel Dennis's 3rd and ultimate novel, first released in 1966.
'A quizzical pleasure... This civilized conundrum is set a anonymous guy captured in a undying battle in an nameless state who manages to outlive in a greenhouse, the place he's such a lot secure in addition to so much exposed... An antiseptic little guy, a cartographer through occupation, a horticulturist through avocation, he spends a primary evening in an deserted, mucky greenhouse and is especially chuffed to be approved to stick on there, tending his 283 plants... despite the fact that he lives within the worry that each day could be his last...' Kirkus Review
'A parable of human pain raised to an existential level.' Time
'A haunting allegory that has motivated my writing.' Diane Johnson (Lulu in Marrakech, Le Divorce)
