“You don’t know where you are? This novel will tell you. It's authors a band of seizing geolocators that come into being through the kindest, darkest collective automatism. Imagine Salford sucked into a pinprick in the ground,  and then inverted, usurped by a new place in the process. Here is Alsdorf, where you've been sent in the dream of surrealism come to pass a century on. What should be praised more? The way this novel has come into being, a testament to the open heartedness that can drive the curiosity of complexity? Or the text itself, groundbreaking, illustrative, rich and weird? Folkloric, luminous, ravenous and completely original, this is a piece of literature unlike anything else.”
