London Peculiar And Other Nonfiction

by Michael Moorcock, introduction by Iain Sinclair, edited by Allan Kausch
£17.99   paperback  The Merlin Press Ltd (2012)

London Peculiar And Other Nonfiction by Michael Moorcock, introduction by Iain Sinclair, edited by Allan Kausch Michael Moorcock personally selects the best of his published, unpublished and uncensored essays, articles, reviews and opinions covering a wide range of subjects: books, films, politics, reminiscences of old friends and attacks on new foes. These writings showcase Moorcock at his acerbic best.
 
Drawn from over 50 years of writing, this anthology includes his most recent work and writings from sources now unobtainable, including:
 
'London Peculiar', an impassioned statement of Moorcock's memories of wartime London and the architectural 'improvements' wrought by the rebuilding of the city after the Second World War. A lengthy review of R. Crumb's Genesis, previously unavailable in English, leads Moorcock to address nostalgia for the sixties. 'Michael Moorcock 1939-', a succinct recounting of Moorcock's exciting, eventful life. From his childhood, through the heady days of editing New Worlds in the swinging sixties, his world travels in the following years, to the present day as a Texan elder statesman of letters; this essay sums up a lifetime of writing and adventurous living.
