Obituary: Witty and imaginative novelist who was twice Booker-nominated and never confined by genre. Art is not serious," wrote the novelist Julian Rathbone in an essay "cobbled together" for a collection of his work, The Indispensable Julian Rathbone, in 2003. It is ludic, it is play, it is Kubrick's train set. It is the best thing we have on this squidgy little planet. A single paragraph later, Rathbone took a sharp turn. I can get very angry," he wrote. Here are the things that make me angry.

Julian Christopher Rathbone was born in 1935 in Blackheath, southeast London. His great-uncle was the actor and great Sherlock Holmes interpreter Basil Rathbone, although they never met. The prolific author Julian Rathbone was a writer of crime stories, mysteries and thrillers who also turned his hand to the historical novel, science fiction and even horror - and much of his writing had strong political and social dimensions. He was difficult to pigeonhole because his scope was so broad.

Motoring with his family to the south-west of France, Thomas Somers is struck with a profoundly unsettling thought: by the end of the holiday he will be older than his father was when he died.Thomas hates his job. He's plagued with mysterious pains in his abdomen. He drinks too much. Distances open up between him and his wife, even his children. And now this sudden disturbing realization. From boyhood he was driven to do better than his dad - above all as a rival for his mother's love, a rivalry riven with guilt. But he recognizes his father was a better man than he. So how can he, how dare he, win the last round of all and live longer?Force-fed by French friends, Thomas finds his nights are filled with dream and memory of the man who became and remained a stranger on the day he joined up and disappeared for three years. Blame Hitler! Obsessed with Wellington (the father figure who never lets you down), Thomas leaves his family and arrives, in turmoil, on one of Wellington's battlefields in northern Spain. Here at last he comes to terms with his father's crippling past.Blame Hitler remembers the men who fought in World War Two, who survived and carried the burden of intolerable traumas for the rest of their lives. It is a comic, tragic, tender novel in which the continuities and discontinuities of domestic life are entwined with history at the sharp end.
