It's Mawdsley Reviews
This is a story that couldn't be told in any other format. It isn't just that the experience wouldn't have as much depth as a screen play or a comic, nor is it that it needs to be a novel to convey that depth; it is that the language itself, from the vernacular to the sentence structure to the very spelling (or lack there of) is unthinkable in mainstream literature or even small press for that matter. This book is a perfect example of how literature IS art and that self-publishing is not the waste dump publishers want you to believe it to be but the venue for what can be Hakim Bey's ideal of poetry as terrorism.I don't know if Baker is even aware of the genre Bizarro but he has written one of the best examples of all that it could and should be. It's so weird it's undefinable but so charming it is universally relatable; you may not know what it's like to kick as much shit as Mawdsley does but you know what its like when all your nouns and adjectives end in "cunt"
The plot of this book is deceptively simple. A young man who has no real place in the world goes on a voyage, though it is not a voyage of discovery. It is a voyage of mayhem. But it is a voyage nonetheless. If Holden Caufield had been aggressively stupid, smelly, violent, a human trafficker, a pedophile, a rapist, a racist and completely without any sort of redemption, Catcher in the Rye might have resembled It’s Mawdsley. Both of them certainly hate phonies. Mawdsley, who cannot keep a job in the UK, travels and rapes and vomits and sells his half-siblings to sodomite priests, ends up at the Academy Awards in the USA, and through a series of misadventures via the trip back to the UK, ends up looking like Osama bin Laden and paralyzed from the waist down. Thankfully, he dies and goes to heaven and shits up the afterlife. And oh yeah, Mawdsley has issues with the number two. Not sure what that was about but there you go. And also it is important to know that Mawdsley longs to utterly befoul and defile Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice. His repellent longing for the singer is, in fact, an important plot point in the book. Read the entire review here.
