By John Herdman
The most dysfunctional of all beings rub against each other in the desperate search for human happiness in John Herdman's gothic miserene, Clapperton.
Also in this volume, The Devil and Dr Tuberose. The bombastically unbalanced Dr Marcus Tuberose battles a legless infantry of demons until he finally confronts the devil himself, embodied in the family dog of his blessed colleagues.
A story of transgressive madness from the master of the Scottish Gothic, John Herdman.
Two tales of the mania, derangement and the psychopathy peculiar to the Caledonian Antisyzygy. Brace yourself for hilarity, ridicule and an exquisite dose of oddity.
