Dolan Cummings discusses his new novel with WORLDbytes volunteers over tea and cakes. That Existential Leap is a novel of ideas about the struggle for self-realisation and belonging in the postmodern West. The book sparks discussion on the nature of the world we live in, are we too narcissistic, isolated and prone to moral panics? Further questions are raised on cultural appropriation in literature, the idea of the ‘global citizen’ and even Brexit. It is certainly a book worth reading and one which fires the imagination.
