Yeah i think it must have been a random freebie. I'm very intrigued by this book although i know very little about it. A Cope fiction is almost unimaginable.


I have a strong suspicion it will be similar (though not in plot or concept) to novels like Valis by Philip K Dick, in that it will be an unfolding, gnostic epic, essentially fictional but (and this is where the Valis comparison comes in) with autobiographical and warped non-fictional real-world elements. I get the impression there will be a great deal of Julian in the 'Rock Section' character.
Obviously there appears to be a strong hooligan/football theme running through it but I do wonder if this is narrative mechanism by which Cope could posit the main characters in the vicinity of Sardinia - given its Italia 90 setting.
