Product Details

Praise

“outstanding paranormal mystery”
– Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Classic Jeff Noon weirdness with a beautifully crafted mystery at its heart.”
– Starburst Magazine


PRAISE FOR JEFF NOON

“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.”
– The Guardian on 
The Body Library

“Rich, inventive and recommended.”
– Sci-Fi Now on The Body Library

“A moody, grimy, ruthlessly funny read… its sense of play and sly manipulation of reader expectations – about metafiction, weird fiction, and noir – is still quite the trip.”
– Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog on The Body Library

“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.”
– British Fantasy Society

The Body Library is a brilliant piece of writing that does a satisfying job of merging noir, magical realism, and a love of all things literary.”
– SF Revu

“A disturbing and bizarre journey by one of the great masters of weird fiction.”
 Adrian Tchaikovsky, Arthur C Clarke Award-winning author of Children of Time on A Man of Shadows

“Noon has written a kaleidoscopic noir novel of dizzying dream logic.”
Publishers Weekly on A Man of Shadows

“Clocks and watches form a recurrent motif in this artful, eerie novel that infuses the mystery genre with symbolism and soul.”
– Financial Times on A Man of Shadows

“Wonderful and uniquely absorbing.”
– Starburst on A Man of Shadows

“Noon is the Lewis Carroll of Manchester’s housing estates.”
– The Times

“Noon is a fiercely urban writer. [He] reflects the energy of the rave generation: the hammer and  twist of the music, the language of the computer games addict and the buzz of technology.”
– New Statesman

“Noon’s blend of quirky ideas, striking prose and imaginative characterisations establishes him as one of the most original voices in imaginative fiction.”
– Booklist

“Let’s call him the first of the psychedelic fantasists.”
– Time Out

“A virtual wonderland.”
– Vanity Fair

“Humorous, horrific and wildly original… an imaginative masterpiece.”
– Library Journal 

“Observes most of the conventions of cyberpunk fiction [yet] its imagery is insistently organic, and owes more to the underground pharmacology of the rave scene than to the world of hard wired chips and user interface.”
– New Yorker 

“Intriguingly textured, reliably witty and inventive, Noon’s whirling purposeful fantasy packs a full whallop.” 
– Kirkus Reviews
