Review:

"Reminiscent of Louise Welsh's The Cutting Room, Camera also contains elements of Sinclairian psychogeography and... this narrative jigsaw shakes down in satisfying style" (Observer)

"A skilfully designed crime story-quotes from letters and newspaper articles are intertwined with other narrative techniques in a remarkably daring but assured way" (Dagens Nyheter)

Book Description:
