Twenty years in the making, Alan Moores Jerusalem is a magnum opus of the legendary comic book writers career. Moore borrows from the realm of theoretical physics, taking the idea of time as the fourth dimension and using it as a platform for an epic literary work. Moore considers the stark ramifications of this idea on love, tragedy and morality in a work of historical fiction centred on his home town of Northampton. The book promises a kaleidoscope of literary forms and styles that range from brutal social realsim to extravagant childrens fantasy and from the modern stage drama to the extremes of science fiction. Featuring a dizzyingly rich cast of characters including the living, the dead, the celestial and the infernal, personages as diverse as Oliver Cromwell, Samuel Beckett, Buffalo Bill and Jame Joyces daughter rub shoulders with drunks, prostitutes, Biblical demons and local legends. Embracing meditations upon science, theology, history, literature, economics, class and metaphysics, this extraordinary narrative works towards a new assessment of the nature of space-time and the human position within it.
