This is genuinely one of the best books I have ever read (top 10, anyway). It is a while since I have picked up but I would heartily recommend it as I would any of his other books (think there are only five novels in total and some poems, a travelogue and some other fragments).

His work is difficult to categorise but seems to me to be just staggeringly original and distinctive.

Paving with local interest

21 01 2006

Follow-up to World’s dullest photo? from Prole Art Threat

Just for completeness – this is an easy to identify spot of more local paving (shortly after a shower). Note general higher standard of finish, although some minor damage is evident.
