But about halfway through it is as though Home wearies of producing something that might actually get him genuine popular approval, and the book veers off into Templeton's increasing insanity, weird speculation about the 7/7 bombings...

Synopsis

Charlie Templeton, his wife Mandy, and student mistress Mary-Jane Millford survived the London terrorist bombings of 7/7, but history has yet to be made. To save the future of western civilization, Charlie, a schizoid cultural studies lecturer with a penchant for horror films and necrophilia, must fight the zombies of university bureaucracy and summon the will to become the last in a long line of mad prophets announcing the end of art.
