Brown, Peter Currell

(1936-    ) UK author whose first novel, Smallcreep's Day (1965), at an indeterminate point in the twentieth century, contains an extremely effective Absurdist quest into the heart of a vast, palpably allegorical factory, though the book as a whole is somewhat scattershot; the notion that the result of the quest for meaning is another assembly line is never sufficiently brought into focus. Mike Rutherford, the guitarist/bassist for the experimental rock group Genesis, released an album entitled Smallcreep's Day (1980), based on the novel. [JC]
