Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Stanley Williams, angst-ridden banker and boffin, wonders whether there's more to life than his daily nine-to-five grind. One night he's dragged to a disco at Piccadilly Circus and there he meets Jessie: artiste, motormouth, ducker and diver. She swoops Stanley out of his soulless life and off on a rollercoaster road trip across Europe, bringing him face to face with a host of forgotten luminaries from the rich mix of black European history and literature.

Almost indecipherable dialogues contribute to a dark and slow reading experience. But shortly after that, the reality changes into pure surrealism. Prose alternates with either poetry, or lyrics. I still have no idea what they are supposed to be; I guess they are mostly the inner dialogues of the two main characters. A man and a woman, by the way, whom I have no problem seeing as best friends, but I just can't imagine them as lovers. And that's exactly what they become in this book, sadly enough; totally unexplainable, though. They are two people I couldn't care less about.
When one of them - after an orgasm - suddenly has a vision in which he finds himself suddenly in the body of William Shakespeare, my mind spontaneously shortcircuits (and believe me, I'm really not making this up ...). The story has this couple going on a road trip, a trip from England to Australia, a story which I thought would fit in nicely after "The Last Summer of Us" by Maggie Harcourt. But this is no road story, this is one of those modern pieces in a museum that makes any normal person think, "Is this art ?!"
I was glad when I finished the book, and that at least the characters finally came to the conclusion that they did not fit together, as well.
