"The writing is splendid"

It’s a Frankenstein’s monster of a novel: large, stitched-together, lumbering, brimming with good intentions but hobbled by its abnormal genesis and never quite becoming the sum of its parts. The writing is splendid, however, full of sharp insight, and the book cleaves to Romero’s cinematic vision of a world where the marginalised and the oppressed are the heroes, standing up to a relentless tide of inanity and injustice.
