‘A curious dispatch from a place many of us had given
up on’ – Leonard Vallely, author of Men In Small Rooms
‘Böhm’s England is a grey, lifeless one... stuck in some kind of temporal anomaly that has robbed its remaining inhabitants of a sense of self and the means by which to navigate their way out of the situation.’ – from the introduction by Frederic Stiller.
