BACK COVER #Robin Marchesi's work is disturbing and inspirational. His approach to life and literature is anarchic and poetic. This book has been finely crafted despite breaking literary rules with its random movement between prose and poetry. Indeed not since Joyce's Ulysses has a writer experimented with the form of language as Mr Marchesi does here. Whether on the tip of Northern Africa or Downtown San Francisco he continually invites us to question our usual perceptions. This journal into Addiction reveals an awesome vista of time and space and an understanding of the human mind both tender and incisive.
