Car Park Life (eBook)
A Portrait Of Britain'S Last Urban Wilderness
de Gareth E Rees
Sobre o livro
CAR PARK LIFE is a psychogeographic exploration of the UK's retail chain store car parks by the author of MARSHLAND and THE STONE TIDE. These commonplace urban landscapes are little-explored, rarely featured in art and music, yet shape the aesthetics of our towns and cities. They are hotspots for crime, rage and sexual deviancy; a blind spot in which activities go unnoticed. Skateboarding, car stunts, drug dealing, dogging, murder. Gareth E. Rees journeys across the country, from Plymouth to Edinburgh, walking purposelessly through car parks taking notes, much to the horror of his family, friends - and, most of all - himself. In this darkly satirical work of non-fiction, Gareth E. Rees presents a troubling vision of Brexit Britain through a common space we know less about than we think.
