Riddley Walker

In Kent there is a Cambry, and in Cambry there is a crypt, a crypt I know to have been built under Archbishop Anselm and his prior from 1099, and which Russell Hoban knew to be a dark heart of beauty and strangeness with enough power as a building to form the terrifying centre of a post-apocalyptic work of fiction. No other work than the resulting Riddley Walker gets closer to the emotional heart of the¬†complex, subjective, powerful, …. spiritual dimensions of the buildings and places my work and life are so deeply committed to. Goodbye then, Russell Hoban, and my Eustach be with you.
