Synopsis:

"The Jorgmund Pipe is the backbone of the world, and it's on fire. Gonzo Lubitsch, professional hero and troubleshooter, is hired to put it out - but there's more to the fire, and the Pipe itself, than meets the eye. The job will take Gonzo and his best friend, our narrator, back to their own beginnings and into the dark heart of the Jorgmund Company itself." "From rural childhood in Cricklewood Cove to military service in a bewildering foreign war; from Jarndice University to the sawdust of the Nameless Bar; their story is the story of the Gone-Away World. It is the history of a friendship stretched beyond its limits; a tale of love and loss; of ninjas, pirates, politics; of curious heroism in strange and dangerous places."--BOOK JACKET.

Book Description: William Heinemann, London, 2008. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: New. Multiple copies of this title available. THE GONE-AWAY WORLD is a hugely ambitious novel set in a time not far from today and utterly recognisable. The Jorgmund Pipe, the backbone of the world and the only thing keeping the Livable Zone safe from the unreal world, is on fire. Gonzo Lubitsch, professional hero and troubleshooter, is hired to put out the flames - but there's more to the fire, and the Pipe, than meets the eye. The job will take Gonzo and his unnamed sidekick - his chronicler and best friend since childhood - back to their own beginnings and into the dark heart of the Jorgmund Company itself. Part adventure, part comic opera, and part geek nirvana, THE GONE-AWAY WORLD is a story of love, pirates, mimes and apocalypses; the story of a world in need of heroic deeds, and the hero who discovers that he has to rely on every aspect of his personality in order to do the right thing.
