Book II of Jerry Cornelius. Jerry inhabits a world at war with itself and, armed only with an occasional vibragun, fights against history for the freedom of randomness against the straitlaced conventions exemplified by his brother Frank.  He is set loose from his Ladbroke Grove H.Q. into a London Chamber of Horrors – who are Bishop Beesley and Karen Von Krupp, the erotic ghosts of Vietnam and the ex-bank clerk slave girl?
