Gareth E. Rees believes that the retail car park has as much mystery, magic and terror as any mountain, meadow or wood. He's out to prove it by walking the car parks of Britain, journeying across the country from Plymouth to Edinburgh, much to the horror of his family, friends - and, most of all - himself.

"I rather suspect that beneath the dotty camouflage, Rees is a writer of deep seriousness and political commitment with an urgent message"

Perhaps, ultimately, the joke is on me. That this is a funny, perceptive, deeply relevant parable and I am a cretin beyond reach is indeed perfectly feasible. But I rather suspect that beneath the dotty camouflage, Rees is a writer of deep seriousness and political commitment with an urgent message. And if so, he really ought to be marketed as such.
