The London Guardian announces that Alan Moore, everyone’s favorite out-of-the-closet magical practicioner cum graphic novelist will be publishing his second novel proper next year, Jerusalem. They describe it thusly:
“The novel is said to explore the small area of Northampton where Moore grew up, ranging from his own family’s stories to historical events to fantasy, with chapters told in different voices. The author told the New Statesman that there would be a ‘Lucia Joyce chapter, which is completely incomprehensible … all written in a completely invented sub-Joycean text,’ while another chapter would be written in the style of a Samuel Beckett play, and a third would be ‘a noir crime narrative based upon the Northampton pastor James Hervey, whom I believe was the father of the entire Gothic movement.’
