Editorial Reviews


A compelling tour de force. The maniac energy of Kerouac pulses throughout the prose. Extraordinary. (Scotsman)

More Groundhog Day than Grand Tour, this is existential travel angst at its best. (Guardian)

One of the country's finest writers (GQ)

Outstanding. Not unlike finding yourself in a hall of mirrors. Meek has a gift for the surreal. (The Times)

As though David Lynch has been let loose on the set of a drawing-room comedy. (The Times)

From the Inside Flap

Alan wants to start a new life in a new town but he's short of cash for a car to get him there. When he agrees to an egg-collecting assignment from a rich stranger he finds himself on a surreal journey across a Europe at war with itself, haunted by Mike, the baseball-bat-wielding literary purist, Deirdre, the maddening mental nurse, and a trail of destruction he began by mistake.
