25 Fall Books Goodreads Users Are Most Excited About: The List List #221

This week’s List List is sponsored by Jerusalem by Alan Moore

In the half-a-square mile of decay and demolition that was England’s Saxon capital, eternity is loitering between the firetrap housing projects. Embedded in the grubby amber of the district’s narrative, a different kind of human time is happening, one that does not differentiate between the petrolcolored puddles and the fractured dreams of those who navigate them. An opulent mythology, the pages of Jerusalem tread ghosts that sing of wealth and poverty; of Africa, and hymns, and our threadbare millennium. Fierce in its imagining and stupefying in its scope, Alan Moore’s epic novel is the tale of Everything, told from a vanished gutter.
