‘Transfixing... an extraordinary debut... The Age of Wire and String, a treasury of interconnected fables of violence and hope, stands out as an exhilarating work of literature. Multiple readings are rewarding.’
Steven Poole, TLS
‘Frequently touching and funny, plenty of madness, magic and gods... a cross between a scientific manual, Monty Python and a kind of Bible, with a surreal and opaque logic of its own.’
Christina Patterson, Observer
‘The Age of Wire and String evades classification, persisting in your mind because of its psychotically ardent prose... It will find its fans among those people who relish prose that mimics dream, who love it when words are used as they once were, as incantations, as spells to summon up the contorted beings of the imagination.’
Matthew De Abaitua, The Idler
‘The most audacious literary debut in decades’
A potential cult classic – the Finnegans Wake of the 1990s.
A bulletin from a parallel universe where the relations between words and things are utterly changed.
Bewitchingly original, genuinely refreshing, The Age of Wire and String takes all of the linguistic value systems on which our great literature is based, chews them up and spits them out. At once artificial, bizarre and bewildering, this is a Finnegans Wake, a Tristram Shandy for the end of the millennium.
