Norton the hero travels through London's underbelly trapped in space but not in time He is present to witness dark deeds f Sinclair s subtitle is Incidents from the Notorious Career of Norton Prisoner of London Incidents is the apt word The book has twelve sections four of them graphic narratives illustrated by Dave McKean the remarkable graphic artist who works freuently with Neal Gaiman All twelve sections could be called stories given how loose that category has become but they are clearly not chapters in a novel no matter how loosely that category might be defined There is murder ghosts miserable day labor a mysterious nighttime soccer match and a evening with the British mid 20th century crime scene Norton is there whether the time is the present day or the 16th century sometimes as a central character at other time a peripheral presence Once he is glimpsed only as a laborer who leaves for lunch and never returns So yes each section is an incident chronologically unhinged but firmly based in a London that is both world and prison for Sinclair s charactersPhantasmagoria were popular Victorian entertainments where magic lantern technology allowed presenters to send images of ghosts and demons careening about a dark interior Slow Chocolate Autopsy is a type of phantasmagoria I found I was alternately lost and exhilarated It s best to let the images wash over you and enjoy the ride Although it wouldn t seem possible the final pages takes the work to a who new level of unexpected strangeness HIghly recommended for those whose favorite JGBallard work is The Atrocity Exhibition
