Dead Air Dead Air
A couple of ice cubes, first, then the apple that really started it all. A loft apartment in London's East End; cool but doomed, demolition and redevelopment slated for the following week. Ken Nott, devoutly contrarian leftish shosk-kock attending a mid-week wedding lunch, starts dropping off the roof towards the deserted car park a hundred feet below. Other guests join in and soon half the contents of the flat are following the fruit towards the pitted tarmac... just as mobiles start to ring, and the apartment's remaining TV is turned on, because apparently a plane has crashed into the World Trade Centre...

Black Spring is vintage Miller. Continuing the subversive selfrevelation begun in Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, he sucks us along his mad, free-associating pace as he reverberates between America and Paris, transporting us fromt he damp grime of Brooklyn youth to sun-splashed French cafes and squalid Paris flats; from a winter night, pure as ammonia, to a dream where a woman's body has the strong white aroma of sorrow.
