I will not be just a tourist in the world of images, just watching images passing by which I cannot live in, make love to, possess as permanent sources of joy and ecstasy

i just finished reading these are only words by simon r. biggam which i would really recomend. it is a refreshingly well written phychological/character study aproach to a conventionally shlock crime/horror subject and i found it to be that illusive combination of both a ‘literary’ novel and a page turner.

if you have ever listened to a neighbours conversation through the wall, found yourself fascinated by the ugly naked guy in the window opposite or found yourself transfixed by hours of live reality tv footage then you may feel an uncomfortable kinship with the protaganist of this book. he likes to ‘watch’ too.

not that he’s some kind of pervert. no, he’d never want you to make that mistake…
