I think it was a bit ambitious, and maybe not super clear in that it may need re-reading a couple of times. It’s based on the premise that every fairground has a bunch of bloody art students spoiling it for everyone else.
I love Medway’s work, and am really looking forward to seeing his Playing Out released next year (preview here) – hopefully February.
But yes, he’s right here about the problems with it. First time I looked I couldn’t completely see it. Granted, I was knackered and merely skated over it, but once I realised I was struggling I went back and did it all over again, concentrating this time. And then it all made sense. Of course it did, and looks very, very nice indeed….
