Falling Out of Cars

Jeff Noon

IN A WORLD OVERFLOWING WITH IMAGES, HOW CAN YOU TELL WHO YOU REALLY ARE?

Marlene Moore wasn't even sure why she accepted the job, except that it gave her the chance to just get in her car and drive. To escape from grief, to keep moving, to maybe find a destination for herself. Now she's journeying around England, a land that turns stranger and more dreamlike the further she travels. Along the way she picks up various passengers, each as lost as she is, each on the run from troubles of their own.

Slowly, day by day, Marlene is falling prey to a sickness, a disease that seems to change the world around her. Only by recording her feelings in a notebook can she keep track of her life. But now even her notebook seems to be turning against her. And the job that started Marlene on this journey turns out to be far weirder, and more dangerous, than she ever imagined.

WHERE DO YOU COME FROM? AND WHERE ARE YOU GOING?

A Road novel for the twenty-first century, Falling Out of Cars explores a country, and a psyche, falling off the edge of reality.

Needle in the Groove

Jeff Noon

In this astonishing novel Jeff Noon allows the complex rhythms of dance music to infect his language, creating a new kind of writing / liquid dub poetics / in the grooves he discovers a world where the scratches of the stylus cut the body / a dj's samples are melodies of blood / love is a ghost lost in the boom box / and the only remix that really matters is the remix of the heart

After years of playing bass in lousy two-bit bands, elliot finally gets his big chance / he meets a singer, a dj and a drummer who seem to have everything / passion, talent, hypnotic songs, and a whole new way of funky seduction / but just as their first dance record is climbing the charts, one of the band disappears / Elliot's search for the missing musician becomes a wild, fiercely emotional trip into the dark soul of rhythm.

Pixel Juice

Jeff Noon

'In the first shop they bought a packet of dogseed, because Doreen had always wanted to grow her own dog...'

Pixel Juice is the collected outpourings of an overactive mind. A selection of fifty stories from Jeff Noon's head, each one strange, telling, disturbing, or sometimes just plain wierd.

From the breakdown zones of the mediasphere and the margins of music culture, Jeff Noon samples the image mix. Product recalls, adverts for mad gadjets, dubcut prose remixes, urban fairytales, instructions for lost machines, almost-true tales, dreamy one-pagers, word-dizzy roller coasters. With new stories from the Vurt cycle and other revelations, including the discovery of an 'off' switch for the human body this newly revised edition marks the first time that Pixel Juice has been made available digitally.
