The Fountain At The Center of the World has now been published in the USA by
Soft Skull press to critical acclaim from the New York Times Sunday Book
Review, who described it as “What you’d get if Tom Wolfe clambered inside
the head of Noam Chomsky — it elegantly and angrily scorches a lot of
earth…the talismanic ‘Catch-22′ of the antiglobalization protest movement,
the fictional complement to Naomi Klein’s influential treatise ”No Logo’.
Jumping back to the UK, Robert’s also started writing a regular column in
the ever-excellent Ecologist magazine (www.theecologist.org for stockists
and subscriptions).
We’re currently in the process of producing a live DVD of Robert’s Caliban
set, which will be on sale via the website. It was filmed last year during
his dates at the Brighton Paramount Comedy Festival, release date etc
available soon.
