Publisher's Summary

The Layers is the debut novel from Stephen Reynolds, exploring how our identity is shaped by our relationships. The anonymous protagonist recounts his life story, showing us how the people he has loved - his parents, sister, grandfather, best friend, and partner - have all helped to form who he is. He is a different version of himself with each loved one, versions which combine to make up a whole person. However, as the book goes on and the protagonist starts to lose grip of people around him, he begins to wonder who he really is without them. Are the various versions of himself lost with those who knew them, or can he remain whole in spite of their loss? Struggling with overwhelming grief and its consequential identity crisis, he teeters on the edge of fading away completely. Can he find a way to pull those lost pieces of himself back together, or is he forever lost to the void?
