Gregory Norminton and
Tony White – Talk
Experimental Fiction
Gregory’s extraordinarily
original, affecting and
urgent new novel The Devil’s
Highway is set on and
around the true highway –
a Roman road that crosses
north Surrey and Hampshire
which Gregory researched
and explored on foot. It’s a
vivid and expertly
constructed novel spanning
three thousand years and
charting the ways in which
one place can become many
places over time.
Tony White’s brilliant The Fountain in the Forest
shifts between Holborn Police Station, an
abandoned village in rural 1980s France, and
Stonehenge’s Battle of the Beanfield.
Transforming the traditional crime narrative into
something dizzyingly unique it is at once an
avant-garde linguistic experiment, thrilling
police procedural and philosophical meditation
on liberty. A counter-culture bildungsroman,
this is an iconoclastic novel of unparalleled
ambition. If you like your fiction a little more
inventive, then this night will be right up your
trouser leg.
