Focusing on the one area of vitality and chaos that remains in the streets below him, he formulates a plan to leave a mark on the city -- one as indelible and disruptive as the mark the city left on him.

No one writes like Jim Crace. In this early novel he tells a rags to riches story in jaunty fashion. Many of the topics he returns to seem more than relevant today.

He's a master.
