5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece?, 8 July 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Tunnel Visions: Journeys of an Underground Philosopher (Hardcover)
This book is written in oddly simply language and has the feel of prose poetry in one or two sections. I would guess the author is holding back or has polished his text until it seems effortless - but is in fact a demonstraion of a highly subtle mastery of how to express complex ideas simply.
On the face of it this is a book about a menial job, working on the London Underground. But really it is a summation of the hollowness of our lives in large cities and the trivial concerns of contemporary society - televison, sport, spin politics etc.It is also a blueprint for a more serious and rewarding approach to life.
I found this book resonated long after I had put it down and believe it may well be a masterpiece. What will he do next? I for one cannot wait.
