Another great review! This time, Jon Stone tackles Weather A System by James Wilkes. Read the full review here at Dr Fulminare’s Questionable Arts. Here’s an excerpt to whet your appetite.

Wilkes keeps his ‘ethereal cannonade’ going right through to the end, gathering up the debris of weather reports and fashion shows alike and reassembling them into tottering word-sculptures, ransacking everything from books to pub chatter for pieces which he can fit together into some out-of-control jigsaw. […] this is a book where the pleasure is in the technicolour range of the language and the urgent sense of not quite being there.

Order Weather A System right here and now, for just £7.99. Go on, do.
