I picked this up for the Dave McKean illustrations - I'd never heard of the author.
Well, I read through page 50 (the first three stories), and looked at all the illustrations.
This just isn't my kind of thing. I guess I'd call it 'British Weird' or something of the sort. The writing seems deliberately unanchored and incoherent, with themes of seedy underworlds and violence running through it. The stories are linked by having a character named 'Norton,' but that seems like a post-hoc device to tie them together.

Maybe it just isn't suiting my mood at the moment, but what I read didn't catch my attention, and from flipping ahead, the rest looks like more of the same. I don't feel like slogging through the remaining 140 pages... ( )

This collection of stories doesn't make much sense. And what makes sense is quite boring.

I bought the book because 3 of the stories are illustrated by Dave McKean but even his art is not that great here. ( )
