DENNIS, Nigel (Forbes)


DENNIS, Nigel (Forbes)
(1912-1989)
   UK writer whose second novel, Cards of Identity (1955), is a FABULATION about a post-WWII England whose citizens are so bereft of security that any identity can be imposed on anyone (see also PARANOIA); the final section, entitled "The Prince of Antioch, or An Old Way to New Identity", constitutes an entire (and entirely fraudulent) Shakespeare play, hilariously couched. In A House in Order (1966) identity is again imperilled as the protagonist, under increasingly surreal assault, attempts to act as though WWIII were not happening around him.
