King of the City by Michael Moorcock

King of the City

Michael Moorcock

Nearly as difficult to take in as a Dickens novel, with a cast of characters to match. The novel can be read as a parable of our times, and as a reaction to the greedy 1990s. It is energetic and written in a staccato style that races along pulling the reader with it.

And we'll embrace, of course. And we'll kiss. And the bells of London will start ringing their familiar chimes. Happily ever after. St. Clement's and Old Bailey. St. Paul's and Westminster. St. Mary-le-bone's and Kensington and Bow. A great celebration of our enduring blood, of our will to justice and equity. Of the power of love.
