"Losing Nelson" is a novel of obsession, the story of Charles Cleasby, a man unable to see himself separately from the hero--Lord Horatio Nelson--he mistakenly idolizes. While Cleasby is convinced Nelson is the greatest hero, Cleasby comes to a horrifying incident of brutality in Nelson's military career that simply stumps all attempts at glorification.
