Anger rages in Philip as he awaits the publication of his sure-to-succeed second novel. He feels pushed out of his adopted home city by the constant crowds and noise, a deteriorating relationship with his girlfriend and his indifference to promoting his own work. When Philip’s idol offers his isolated summer home as a refuge, he finally gets the peace and quiet to focus on his favorite subject — himself. A complex, intimate, and highly idiosyncratic comedy, LISTEN UP PHILIP is a literary look at the triumph of reality over the human spirit.
