Product description


A counter-cultural puzzle constructed with wit, sleight of hand and dazzle... satire without terminal melancholy. Here is the dark London of deep memory, the viral light of Los Angeles (cancelled future. Prose frolics across the retina. Shut your eyes and enjoy the flight)

' Iain Sinclair, author of London Orbital ?One of our zaniest and most original comic novelists? Sunday Times ?A fascinating oddball novel? in turns funny, a little poignant and hugely entertaining? Four-star review, Big Issue in the North ?It steers well clear of clich? and you can?t fault Nicholson?s originality and invention? The Crack ?[A] superb novel, which is choked with coincidence but relieved of contrivance by its slick, tongue-in-cheek plotting. Plain weirdness segues into historical gravity and back into delicious farce? Independent ?The sublimely good Geoff Nicholson?s new novel is an absolute treat? elegant, exceptional novel? Scotland on Sunday ?Black comedy, film, and history intertwine to offer a lively original read? Good Book Guide ?He?s a great mapmaker, portraying with equal assurance the worlds of restoration London, Hollywood and embittered but charmingly self-deprecating souls? Independent on Sunday ?It?s an odd novel this one? Somehow, it works deliciously? Herald
