If you like literary science fiction, then Jeff Noon is the author for you. Vurt, winner of the 1994 Arthur C. Clarke award, is a cyberpunk novel with a difference, a rollicking, dark, yet humorous examination of a future in which the boundaries between reality and virtual reality are as tenuous as the brush of a feather. Vurt is a feather - a drug, a dimension, a dream state, a virtual reality. It comes in many colours: legal Blues for lullaby dreams. Blacks, filled with tenderness and pain, just beyond the law. Pink Pornovurts, doorways to bliss. Silver feathers for techies who know how to remix colors and open new dimensions. And Yellows - the feathers from which there is no escape. The beautiful young Desdemona is trapped in Curious Yellow, the ultimate Metavurt, a feather few have ever seen and fewer still have dared ingest. Her brother Scribble will risk everything to rescue his beloved sister. Helped by his gang, the Stash Riders, hindered by shadowcops, robos, rock and roll dogmen, and his own dread, Scribble searches along the edges of civilization for a feather that, if it exists at all, must be bought with the one thing no sane person would willingly give. Jeff Noon has been a pop musician (guitarist with Manicured Noise), a painter (exhibited as part of the Northern Young Contemporaries) and a playwright. His first play, Woundings, won The Mobil Playwriting Competition, and he was subsequently playwright in residence at The Royal Exchange Theatre Manchester. He was also winner of the John W. Campbell Memorial Award 1995. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dean Williamson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/012690/bk_adbl_012690_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

DEAD DREAMS OF MONOCHROME MEN | 1989Directed by David Hinton Devised and created collaboratively under the direction of Lloyd Newson Performed by Lloyd Newson, Nigel Charnock, Russell Maliphant and Douglas Wright Music by Sally Herbert “…painful, original, convincingly observed and compassionate…” The TimesSTRANGE FISH | 1992 Directed by David Hinton Adapted for the screen by Lloyd Newson and David Hinton Performed by Kate Campion, Nigel Charnock, Jordi Cortes Molina, Wendy Houstoun, Melanie Pappenheim (Vocals), Diana Payne-Myers, Lauren Potter and Dale Tanner Music by Jocelyn Pook and Adrian JohnstonPRIX ITALIA 1994 SPECIAL PRIZE - MUSIC & ARTS“The playing of the ensemble, the brilliant confl ict and complementing of personalities, the shared sense of risk and trust, the acuteness of timing and physical response is matched by an emotional awareness that is dazzlingly communicative.” Financial TimesENTER ACHILLES 1995 Directed by Clara van Gool Adapted for the screen by Lloyd Newson and Clara van Gool Performed by Gabriel Castillo, Jordi Cortes Molina, Juan Kruz Diaz de Garaio Esnaola, David Emanuel, Ross Hounslow, Jeremy James, Liam Steel and Robert Tannion Music by Adrian JohnstonEMMY AWARD 1997, PERFORMING ARTS, NEW YORK“A rare, rich devastating, triumphant work of art ... dramatic coherence, human integrity, irresistible visual power, were all there in this outstanding work...” Daily TelegraphDead Dreams of Monochrome Men begins with lascivious glances in a gay bar and ends with a brief glimpse from behind closed curtains onto the empty, sunlit street outside. Strange Fish opens with a semi-naked woman hanging Christ-like from a cross, singing. The piece ends with a similar scene, in which the woman lies crumpled on her stomach on the hard, dusty ground – shaken down from the cross by the protagonist (Wendy Houston), who having searched for a man to love is instead visited by nightmarish, biblical plagues. Enter Achilles is set in a pub, a place where men meet to drink, sing karaoke and carry out their male rituals, and ends the following morning with a view of the club from the outside. Lloyd Newson’s psychodramas unfold in enclosed spaces such as these. In Dead Dreams of Monochrome Men a bare and unfurnished set, structured using light and shade, a wall, an opening, a bathtub, the hotel in Strange Fish – empty, dusty and abandoned, or the old-world comfort and traditional authenticity of the pub in Enter Achilles. The characters that occupy these spaces react savagely, longing desperately for human company, tenderness and recognition.
