1. A terrorist siege at Claridge’s in 2012 replaces the Olympics as end of the world TV spectacle. An en suite novel is curated around a series of subjects forced to strip naked and perform like pornstars for a watching world.

2. Hard-boiled noir meets classic French theory as a zombie author transgresses the outer limits of postmodern fiction. The warped narrative plunges from art house to grindhouse and back again.

3. An insanely unofficial fictional updating of Derrida’s Of Grammatology. Think 24 Hour Party People as directed by Kenneth Anger after he’d croaked and crawled on all fours through the furthest recesses of hell.

Brazen sadists, high-flying hopheads, invisible strippers and the destiny of objects are just some of the themes tackled by Mark Waugh in Bubble Entendre, a tripartite, literary bender. Dirty, dingy and drug fuelled, Wilhelm Reich might have penned this book if he’d been force-fed LSD and subjected to a steady diet of dubstep and grime.

Bubble Entendre is published as part of Book Works’ Semina series (No.3). Edited by Stewart Home.
