Product description

Review

"Unquestionably Jerusalem is Moore's most ambitious statement yet - his War and Peace, his Ulysses. The prose scintillates throughout, a traffic jam of hooting dialect and vernacular trundling nose-to-tail with pantechnicons of pop culture allusion. Exploring a single town's psychogeography with a passionate forensic intensity, Moore makes the parochial universal, the mundane sublime and the temporal never-ending.&Quot; --Financial Times

"Drawing on Blake and Bunyan, Moore has created a fully-realised working-class mythology that is utterly contemporary and much-needed." --The Quietus

"Mr. Moore's prose is rich and complicated and at times ponderous. Once you slip into the rhythm of it, it is also poetic, insightful, and beautiful... It is possible that scholars will be picking this apart for years to come." --Post-Gazette

"Soars high on the wings of the author's psychedelic imagination. His bighearted passion for his people, his city, and the whole monstrous endeavor of the human condition is infectious. I'm not sure there's a God, but I thank Her for Alan Moore." --Entertainment Weekly

"The novel has the immersive imaginative power of fable; it also deepens Moore's career-long investigation into the kind of collapsed rationality that borders on genius and might, very easily, be misdiagnosed as madness." --The New Yorker

"Moore is rightly regarded as a comic book writing genius and pretty much redefined comic book storytelling... This book will... change a generation." --Starburst

"In this staggeringly imaginative second novel, Moore (Watchmen) bundles all his ruminations about space, time, life, and death into an immense interconnected narrative that spans all human existence within the streets of his native Northampton, U.K. Reading this sprawling collection of words and ideas isn't an activity; it's an experience... It's all a challenge to get through, and deliberately so, but bold readers who answer the call will be rewarded with unmatched writing that soars, chills, wallows, and ultimately describes a new cosmology. Challenges and all, Jerusalem ensures Moore's place as one of the great masters of the English language." --Publishers Weekly

"Fierce in its imagining and stupefying in its scope, Jerusalem is the tale of everything, told from a vanished gutter." --Down the Tubes

"It often feels like one of those Stanley Spencer paintings where the resurrected wander around, mildly dazed, in nondescript urban back gardens. It contains a considerable amount of brilliantly vigorous writing."--The Spectator

"Magisterial: an epic that outdoes Danielewski, Vollmann, Stephenson, and other worldbuilders in vision and depth." --Kirkus Reviews

"For his latest work, Moore turns in a sprawling, million-word saga blending fantasy and historical fiction set roughly in the Northampton, England, neighborhood in which he grew up. . . . [Moore's] fans will doubtless find much here to ponder and delight in." --Booklist
