In the year 1960, private eye John Nyquist arrives in Delirium, a city of a million borders, to pursue his strangest case yet: tracking down Oberon, the stolen, sentient image of faded film star Vince Craven. As Nyquist tracks Oberon through a series of ever-stranger and more surreal borders, he hears tantalising stories of the Yeald, a First Wall hidden at Delirium's heart. But to get the help he needs to find it, he'll have to journey into the fractured minds of the city's residents, and even into his own...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A disturbing and bizarre journey by one of the great masters of weird fiction."
"Clocks and watches form a recurrent motif in this artful, eerie novel that infuses the mystery genre with symbolism and soul."
"Noon is the Lewis Carroll of Manchester's housing estates"
"Noon is a fiercely urban writer."
"Noon's blend of quirky ideas, striking prose and imaginative characterisations establishes him as one of the most original voices in imaginative fiction."
"Let's call him the first of the psychedelic fantasists."
"Humorous, horrific and wildly original... an imaginative masterpiece."
"Intriguingly textured, reliably witty and inventive, Noon's whirling purposeful fantasy packs a full whallop."
"Classic Jeff Noon weirdness with a beautifully crafted mystery at its heart."
"It's a heady psychedelic mix, packed with literary allusions, which brilliantly explores notions of self-identity, personal awareness and how we fit into our own stories."
"Rich, inventive and recommended."
"By writing a novel set in literature itself the author has created a new psychedelic meta-genre as well as a fantastic story that sticks in the mind long after the novel itself is read."
"An intoxicating and rewarding experience"
"One of our finest writers...Within Without is a tour de force of surrealist SF"
