Description

'Savage talked about his life as a re-offender. How could someone be offended by the same thing twice? Was nothing learnt?'

Beerlight, the city of all of our futures, is not a safe place. Weaponry, rather than fast cars or designer clothes, is the ultimate status symbol. The populace is dedicated to law-breaking, politically incorrect views and hurling abuse and hand grenades at each other.

Combining elements of surrealism, film noir and punk rock ethos, Aylett creates a darkly comic landscape that's a cross between a Tarantino film and a Bosch painting, where murder is the ultimate expression of art.

The cast of hoodlums includes burglar extraordinaire Billy Panacea, conman-cum-lawyer Harpoon Specter and other fun-loving felons who hang out at the Delayed Reaction Bar on Valentine Street reading the Parole Violators Bugle.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 10, 2001 – British author Steve Aylett depicts a world devoid of morality and consequence in his latest futuristic novel, The Crime Studio. In the stark world of Beerlight, "crime is the last innovative art form," and a cast of characters with such comical names as "Bleach Pastiche" and "Harpoon Specter" practice crime as art, in a manner reminiscent of Burgess's A Clockwork Orange. Aylett injects his dreary vision of the future with biting sarcasm and eloquent wit. The influence of pop culture is strong, from the comic-book imagery to the introductory quote from Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Enjoyable and original, The Crime Studio will appeal to fans of graphic novels and science fiction.
