Starts off well and then collapses under its own self referential weigth.

Three characters - Dot, Saul and told from the persepctive of Owen - living in the middle of the early nineties art scene in up and coming Hoxton. The book charts their relationships, the sex, jealously, living in squalor with knowing humourous digs at the trendies and the art scene, that Morrison is no doubt a member of.

The early pages are the best - although it comes across as a thinly veiled pastiche of Withnail and I. S

Gave up after 150 pages as I really couldn't be bothered with characters who had no reality, I'm sure my 16 year old self would have thought it 'cool', but I know a bit about creativity, video installations, art, and this ain't it. Sub Withnail and I and I've never liked that much. I live and have lived in no so great circumstances and with a damn sight more interesting people than in this. I am sure others will love it especially if they leave their brain behind when opening the book.

This is without question the worse book I have ever read. What surprises me is that it was ever published in the first place. I wish I'd never bothered to read this and abandoned it earlier on as this is 8 days of my life that I will never get back.

Summed up the times perfectly.
Impeccable writing by an author at the top of his game.
