4.0 out of 5 stars Getting back into his stride, 15 May 2004
This review is from: Falling Out of Cars (Paperback)
Britain is in the grip of a sickness that interferes with people's ability to make sense of the information they are bombarded with: even their own reflections become anathema. Marlene Moore - helped by a heavy, his girlfriend and a lonely hitchhiker - is on an expedition to find the shards of a broken mirror (possibly a very famous one), hoping thereby to restore some order.
The plot is revealed in small fragments of melancholy and beautiful writing that lead towards a strange, ambivalent ending. Many of Noon's obsessions are here: information being corrupted, confusion of reality and fantasy, Alice. There are formal tricks, but these serve the telling rather than intruding as they have done in some of his other recent books. Indeed this is something of a return to form.
