A seven-foot-tall man washes up naked on the Scottish coast with no memory of his past and no clue to his identity except the words “Gog” and “Magog” tattooed on his knuckles. Knowing only that he must somehow get to London, he sets off on foot on a four hundred mile journey across Britain. As we accompany him on his surreal quest and share his strange adventures – by turns hilarious, horrific, bawdy, and bizarre – unexpected truths gradually emerge not only about his own past but also the history of Britain itself.
A towering achievement that blends myth, history, epic fantasy, Gothic horror, and picaresque adventure, Gog (1967) was acclaimed by critics on both sides of the Atlantic, who compared it to the great works of Cervantes, Swift, Fielding, Dickens and Joyce. This new edition, the first in decades, joins two other classics by Andrew Sinclair also available from Valancourt.
