9780099519973: The Gone-Away World

The Jorgmund Pipe is the backbone of the world, and it's on fire. Gonzo Lubitsch, professional hero and troubleshooter, is hired to put it out - but there's more to the fire, and the Pipe itself, than meets the eye. The job will take Gonzo and his best friend, our narrator, back to their own beginnings and into the dark heart of the Jorgmund Company itself.

Equal parts raucous adventure, comic odyssey and Romantic Epic, The Gone-Away World is a story of - among other things - love and loss; of ninjas, pirates, politics; of curious heroism in strange and dangerous places; and of a friendship stretched beyond its limits. But it also the story of a world, not unlike our own, in desperate need of heroes - however unlikely they may seem.

Review:

"Its scope and ambition are extraordinary, its execution is often breathtaking, and its style is by turns hilarious, outrageous, devastating, hip and profound ... Hugely entertaining" ( Independent on Sunday)

"Breathtakingly ambitious ... A bubbling cosmic stew of a book, written with such exuberant imagination that you are left breathless by its sheer ingenuity" ( Observer)

"[A] post-apocalyptic triumph ... Immensely rewarding ... Genuinely terrifying" ( The Times)

"A stunning debut" ( Scotland on Sunday)

"Exuberant...Wildly inventive" (Michael Gove The Times)

Book Description:

The literary debut of 2008 - part adventure, part comic opera, part geek nirvana
