Really good, interesting working on a classic book. The contemporary setting and locations in this book make it really interesting. As a young, adopted londoner I found the book captivating not only for the main plot but also for the interesting history regarding the AIDS virus in London. At the time I read this I was actually working off Goodge Street and used to go past the hospital mentioned in the book everyday (though it has now been demolished). I came across this book after meeting Self at a literary event and was very skeptical about him messing with a classic but he has definitely pulled this off very well.
