Titus Groan has fled the rambling, ruined, and ruinous castle of Gormenghast, desperate for a view of the world beyond. But he wasn’t prepared for this. Satellites, death rays, sinister policemen, and underworld outcasts live in a nightmarish contemporary city that feels like something from the imagination of Wells, Burroughs, or Philip K. Dick. Threatened and lost, he begins to miss the home he left; but surely he won’t be tempted back, right? Titus Alone is a completely unexpected development. Its bizarre and absurd satirical vision places the dangers of progressive modernity against the deadening force of tradition.
