A major selection from Monk’s work, including “Interregnum” in its entirety for the first time, here combined with new sequences not previously published. This is a substantial volume from a key British writer whose approachable experimental works are filled with wit, linguistic virtuosity and a sound grasp of the shifting realities of the worlds we live in.
