Tunnel Vision is a book unlike any other. A documentary of the narrator's post-adolescent relationships; an account of time in Chemnitz, Bergen, Dublin, Paris, Gwangju, Munich and Madrid; an exploration in artifice and honesty; an autobiography of a compulsive liar whose intimate portrayals of political inaction, sexual repression, masculinities in crisis and addiction to drugs and pornography collide with six piercingly intelligent critical essays on photographic self-portraiture and the personal diary. Whether writing about the sale of Susan Sontag's archive, or the reframing of Andre Kertesz's wedding photograph, Breathnach's writing - brave, wild, and genre-bending - inaugurates a dazzling new voice in art and literature.
