There is something stirring, the inspiration of a time between life and death brought together in a series of uncanny and prophetic paintings and the somewhat unlikely destination of Northampton.

As a group of disparate characters converge – a prostitute, a monster, a young boy, a council worker and thus unfolds a daringly ambitious dissection of the modern world, wild visions of a world experienced on the verge of death encountering ghosts, historical and literary figures, spirits and demon kings.

Jerusalem is the frankly astonishing summation of Moore’s belief, transmuting this unprepossessing corner of the East Midlands into the crossroads and crucible of the history that has shaped our country.

It is, at the very least, a Joycean tour de force, toying with a myriad of fictional forms and ultimately weighing in as one of the ten longest novels yet to be published in the United Kingdom. Most writers undertaking a project of this nature would find it simply collapsing under its own ambition, but Moore is not most writers.

For the legions of Moore’s fans, this is an addition to the canon that won’t disappoint.
