Mr 101 tells the story of an eccentric magician, chocolatier and thinker, driven to solitude because of his hatred of the sun. Mr 101's secluded world is turned upside-down when Daffodil enters his reality-defying house and is made to stay there by her father. Her presence alters the atmosphere in this strange house and causes some strange events to stir. In between passages, Mr 101 has seventy-two thoughts that emerge from the narrative. The novel is sprinkled with magic, thought-provoking philosophy and humour, all stirred into one mixture.
