An opulent mythology for those without a pot to piss in, through the labyrinthine streets and pages ofJerusalem tread ghosts that sing of wealth and poverty; of Africa, and hymns, and our threadbare millennium. They discuss English as a visionary language from John Bunyan to James Joyce, hold forth on the illusion of mortality post-Einstein, and insist upon the meanest slum as Blake s eternal holy city. Fierce in its imagining and stupefying in its scope, Alan Moore s epic novel, Jerusalem, is the tale of Everything, told from a vanished gutter. "
