9780007461202: Somewhere East of Life (The Squire Quartet, Book 4)

The final volume of the critically acclaimed Squire Quartet.

Having abandoned Britain to its recession, architectural historian Roy Burnell operates out of Germany, attempting to hold the world together culturally. Moving around the more outrageous parts of the globe, his task is to list architectural gems threatened by war, history and human awfulness.

Such is man’s ingenuity, however, that Burnell’s mind is also threatened. Someone has stolen a chunk of his memory – ten years in fact. This chunk, and in particular the more salacious bits, such as his marriage to Stephanie, has been chopped up, recorded in e-mnemonicvision and sold to lovers of soft porn everywhere.

First published in 1994 and unavailable for some time. Features a new introduction by the author.

Review:

‘Caps his entire career… sums up the warnings he has uttered for decades.’ NEW STATESMAN

‘As exotic and picaresque as anything in the Helliconia series; the novel boils with ideas about belief and causality, and is shot through with visionary and delirious passages.’ DAILY TELEGRAPH

‘Packs in enough detailed research and relevance for a dozen novels with contemporary settings.’ LITERARY REVIEW

Book Description:

* Fourth in a quartet that presents an unrivalled mirror for our times - and our impending future.
