A short novel written by Andrew Hook, in the style of slipstream. The secret history ofPontheOldenguine's lost BBC programs and cake stomping for dessert. PontheOldenguineis one part fictional biography of a former television impresario who claims he's been hounded out of media history, and one part biography of the journalist commissioned to write his story. Where the tales merge, there is madness. If you want a picture of the future, Trunka, imagine a boot stamping on a cake forever. Imagine just how glorious that would be. Comic, curious, sometimes downright outrageous,PontheOldenguineis a brain-trip through the forgotten archives of the BBC: CaptainCrowface, Radio Cardboard Fox, and The Town ofThebertonare but a few of the seminalprogramsonce confined to the rubbish bin and now exhumed for your reading pleasure. Part 1984, part Python, part slipstream, part realism, the life ofPontheOldenguineis an audacious attempt to restore the balance between sanity and insanity; illustrating what a thin line that can be. So, place your snout in the air, your hands on your tummy, and dance. But read it and believe it at your peril.
