5.0 out of 5 stars Liquid Fiction, 11 Jun. 2003
This review is from: Needle in the Groove (Paperback)
Noon has written a fine and adventurous book. A book about father's and sons, reality and illusion and (of course) sex and drugs and rock and roll. Noon's english slant on beat prose describes the music - or what is essential about the music in the ears of bassplayer Elliot- perfectly, and he finds an ingenious and effective literary equivalent to the dance remix, itself a metaphor for the search on which the central character is engaged
Noon has rewritten the streetmap of Manchester in honour of its musicians - the good the bad and the Hollies. He reimagines also the crucial last night at the Electric Circus, a real event which provides a backdrop to the various changing plot permutations. Noon has rewritten Borges to sound like Kerouac. This is the kind of fiction which bookshops should be full of, but which is sadly not easy to find in England.
Cyberpunk fans will have read it by now, but it should also appeal to readers of Ballard or Russell Hoban or Robert Nye.
Read it.
