Jerusalem Hardcover

Alan Moore
Alan Moore – creator of Watchmen, From Hell, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and V for Vendetta – pens a grandiose tome about his hometown of Northampton, employing an extremely wide variety of styles, including a poem and a play.
 
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.
 
An opulent mythology for those without a pot to piss in, through the labyrinthine streets and pages of JERUSALEM tread ghosts that sing of wealth and poverty; of Africa, and hymns, and our threadbare millennium. They discuss English as a visionary language from John Bunyan to James Joyce, hold forth on the illusion of mortality post-Einstein and insist upon the meanest slum as Blake’s eternal holy city.
 
Fierce in its imagining and stupefying in its scope, Jerusalem is the tale of everything, told from a vanished gutter.
 
A master storyteller tak[ing] the voices of the dead as his own” – Neil Gaiman
