As wiith Punktown, Thomas delivers another rich alternate history, this time rewriting the past. We experience a world transformed by insectoid aliens who insidiously influence humans from the 1910s through the 1960s. The pathetic protagonist's life is forever entangled with the living cameras he has the talent to operate.

Highly imaginative and laced with the dark comedy prevalent in much of Thomas' superb writing.
I loved this book! Though I must say that it reminded me of the movie adaptation of William S. Burrough's Naked Lunch... You'll just have to read it to see why! And I highly recommend you do.
