9780006511052: Going, Going, Gone

Ambient, Terraplane, Heathern, Elvissey, Random Acts of Senseless Violence – five volumes of Womack’s ground-breaking AMBIENT sequence. Going Going Gone is the stylish, surprising finale.

21st Century New York. Megacorporations rule, particularly Dryco – symbol: a smiley face seen on everything. In reality, a murderously ruthless organisation bent on world domination, and they’re almost there…

Review:

‘Nazi flying saucers over an alternate 50s Memphis, the cross-time abduction of Elvis Presley, and what must surely be one of the flat-out weirdest Fisher King inversions yet perpetrated in American literature… delivers a jarringly potent kick in the head. I can only urge you to put yours cleanly it’s way’
WILLIAM GIBSON

On LET’S PUT THE FUTURE BEHIND US:

‘Dark, brilliant and deeply worrying. Much like Russia itself.’
ESQUIRE

‘I don’t expect to read a funnier and more profound book this year, and you shouldn’t either.’
TIME OUT

From the Back Cover:

'NEW YORK, NEW YORK…'

Walter Bullitt's New York, 1968. Part-time U.S. government provocateur and full-time hepcat, Walter isn't keen on the assignment his employers are trying to toss him – no need to mix with the Kennedys if you don't have to.

'…SO GOOD, THEY MADE IT TWICE'

He also hopes the ghosts he's been talking too lately are only a side effect of the recreational drugs. Then two women from a different New York show up and tell him they aren't. Now, Walter saw 'When Worlds Collide' but he never thought he'd be starring in the road show, especially when one world is his and the other, invisible – at the moment.

Altered states, dodgy times, warped futures, weirder pasts. It must be Jack Womack world.

"Womack performs feats of brilliance on many levels. He succeeds in balancing blistering social commentary with shrewd literary experimentation" ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

"His aim is utterly merciless, and the central strength of his arsenal is an ability to fracture the language of the late 20th century into vicious shards that wound in unexpected ways… Womack knows his way around the compost of violence and death" VANITY FAIR

"Womack, simply the coolest writer of his generation" NOTHERN ECHO
