Product description


"The miracle...Harrison performs is to expand the possibilities of perception." -- Guardian, UK

"Coloured by longing and wonder, Nova Swing is filled with a humanity that makes it as substantial as it is dazzling." --Time Out, London

"A cross between J. G. Ballard's intense, static The Drowned World and Arkady and Boris Strugatsky's terrifying Roadside Picnic... memorable, perplexing and challenging in equal measure." --Kirkus Reviews
