Product Description Review Praise for "Automated Alice": " Borges crossed with Philip Larkin on acid." -- "Arena" " Captures Carroll's style effortlessly... . A weird Alice with a contemporary edge." -- "Mail on Sunday" From the Back Cover Marlene Moore wasn't even sure why she accepted the job, except that it gave her the chance to just get in her car and drive. To escape, to keep moving, to maybe find a destination for herself. Now she's journeying around England, a land that turns stranger and more dreamlike, the further she travels. Slowly, day by day, Marlene is falling prey to a sickness, a disease that seems to change the world around her. And the job itself turns out to be far weirder, and more dangerous, than she ever imagined. A road novel like no other, Falling Out of Cars explores a country, and a psyche, falling off the edge of reality.

Reception >> It was bad last night. Very bad. The worst yet. There were too many of them, a family, and all of them crazed. We had to leave empty-handed. Henderson took a knock to the skull. She's blaming me. Finally, we holed up in a bed and breakfast outside the city. A dark and nasty place it was, with people stumbling up and down the corridors all night long, moaning, lamenting. Difficult to sleep. Blood in the toilet bowl, shit on the walls. All the mirrors, and even the screen of the television, all covered over with black paint. But it was cheap, and safe. No questions asked, even at the three of us wanting to share the one tiny room.And then a late start this morning, and many miles yet
