In the half a square mile of decay and demolition that was England's Saxon capital, eternity is loitering between the firetrap tower blocks. Embedded in the grubby amber of the district's narrative, among its saints, kings, prostitutes and derelicts, a different kind of human time is happening.
Through the labyrinthine streets and minutes of Jerusalem tread ghosts that sing of wealth and poverty, of Africa, hymns and our threadbare millennium.
"Fierce in its imagining and stupefying in its scope,
Jerusalem is the tale of everything, told from a vanished gutter." (
Down the Tubes)
Praise for the author: "His sci-fi detective masterpiece Watchmen made him (Alan Moore) the comic industry's de facto leader back in 1986." ( The Guardian)
