9780061008054: The Glimmering

An audacious exploration of the violent margins and decadent centre of a world giving birth to a new millennium. Will it be still-born or new-born?

It is 1999. The Last Days say some; The First, claim others. The climate is warming, the evening skies are awash with dreamy, multi-coloured lights, and underground cults are preparing for the frenzy of all frenzies – The Night of the Thousand Years.

Jack Finnegan, the world’s last literary publisher, is dying of AIDS; Trip Marlowe, VR rock star, is dying from too many mind-expanding excursions courtesy of IZE; and Leonard Thrope is coming to town with his wonderful life-restoring elixir.

Trippy sex, new age revivals and the hottest hallucinogens the imagination can buy – it must be the time of the Glimmering.

Review:

In 1999 the world has gone to hell: global warming, AIDS, urban decay, environmental disasters and, above it all, the Glimmering. The Glimmering is an accident of modern society, a phenomenon that is destroying the ozone layer and killing the earth. In these last days, Jack Finnegan, suffering from AIDS, has come home to his family's decaying Manhattan mansion to die. He will meet Trip Marlowe, a rock star hooked on the hallucinogenic IZE, and unknowingly play out a bizarre drama scripted by his former lover, the "sociocultural pathologist" Leonard Thrope. You won't be able to put down this engrossing tale.
