** FridgeBrilliance: The narrator of ''The Repairer of Reputations'' mentions that he has been unable to work, and in fact has been a social recluse, since being thrown from a horse a few years prior. His cousin Louis appears to be his only mentally stable social contact and possibly responsible for his material support as well. The things the narrator describes may very well be distortions of reality ("suicide chambers" are subway entrances; the military parade is actually a regular police patrol; the battleships are regular merchant vessels). Louis remarks that the crown the narrator removes from a safe is actually a theater prop he was keeping in a biscuit tin. [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation This all sounds like the result of the traumatic brain injury the narrator suffered in his riding accident]].

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: At various points the play indulges in ham-fisted political commentary about civil liberties and indefinite detention and various other comments that the reader might assume are obvious references to post-9/11 America. Until you remember that the book was written in ''1999''!

* NightmareFuel: Large chunks, including Mr. Wilde and his homicidal cat, the ambiguous fate of Hawberk and his daughter, the hideous night watchman and what he does to Jack and Tessie, and, of course, the [[MindScrew unanswered]] [[TakeOurWordForIt question]] of just what the titular FictionalDocument is about.

** Of course this is according to the narrator of the story, who's also a {{blackmail}}er and ''batshit crazy''. So you don't necessarily have to take the sentiment at face value.
