The author writes for cracked.com. That, in fact, seems to be his day job. Why am I reading this book? Besides its odd echoes of the imperfectly remembered even if twice-read Armor of Light?

I go back to White Teeth with relief. That one acquires depth and gravitas by contrast. And still reminds me of The Midnight Mayor, though god alone knows why.

(Perverse reaction, as ever- I really want to be reading Angus Wilson's Anglo-Saxon Attitudes. Quite a different England from Zadie Smith's- or Kate Griffin's, come to that.)
