This was Cole's first novel, and it shows his great skill at characterization. Norman is a delusional, self-aggrandizing out-of-work musical theatre actor. He's just been told that his mortgage is in default and he is going to lose his house.

Bray seems so real-life that I frequently wanted to punch him in the throat. It was hard to read at times just because he was so bloody annoying--and not in a "no one really acts like that way", even though he's so over the top.
