The Beach Beneath The Pavement is a set in a London very close in time and space to our own. It’s an extravagant philosophical satire about how we make sense of a world where no one believes in anything. It’s about the lost or corrupted dreams of the sixties and seventies, dissent, experimental theatre, paranoia, conspiracy theory, drugs, art, new age panaceas, surveillance,therapy, the media, computers, chaos theory, money and the power of fiction.


The style has been compared, with varying degrees of favour, to Thomas Pynchon, Martin Amis, Kingsley Amis, Iain Banks, Evelyn Waugh, Will Self, Tom Sharpe, Tom McCarthy and JohnKennedy Toole. And ‘The Avengers’, circa mid-60’s. Take your pick from those.
