THE NOT KNOWING by Cathi Unsworth; Serpent's Tail Books, 2006
A ritual slaughter that mimics a scene from the hit film of a murdered director. Scummy lowlifes reeking of grease and glamour. Fucked out musicians splayed against a Jukebox puking Rockabilly. Sleazy publishers and the assholes they publish and promote. A saucy tale spiked with grimy gems. “The moon was in the gutter...” so begins the first chapter, a beautiful evocation to the horrible mysteries and rampant miseries that paint London for what it truly is: a brutal, violent, crushing, irresistible vortex.
