Overview
-

Morris Magellan is thirty-four years old and already two-thirds destroyed. By day he is an executive, after six and at weekends the husband ofan understanding wife and the father of two. At all times he is a music lover and a drunk.Of the past he remembers only fear, and of the future he senses even greater terror to come; he is a man struggling from moment to momentto salvage something of himself before that too slips from his grasp.On one level The Sound of My Voice tells the story of an alcoholic: a frantic attempt by some inner voice to halt an apparent need for selfdestruction.More generally it presents the conflict between modern man’s cowardice and cruelty, and a desperate attempt to recover humanity.
