Ghost of Chance Reviews


?The man?s got something to say, so shut up and listen? Time Out ?Whether scorning the cult of the prophets or considering the nature of truth, his writing is by turns as dark as Conrad, as sexy as Genet, as complex as Derrida, but always uniquely his own? Attitude ?Ideal for the supercool, heavy-duty intellectual in your life? Elizabeth Young
