Knees Up Mother Earth Summary

Knees Up Mother Earth by Robert Rankin

There's big trouble in little Brentford. Property developers are planning to destroy the borough's beloved football ground and build executive homes on the site. Shock! Outrage! Horror! Something must be done to halt this iconoclasm. The lads of The Flying Swan, Brentford's most celebrated drinking house, take up the challenge. Norman the corner shopkeeper has some ideas. He's recently discovered a Victorian computer which holds the plans to the secret super-technology of a bygone age. And Archroy, Brentford's lone yachtsman and explorer, has just returned from his seventh voyage, bringing with him the fabled Golden Fleece. There's Jim Pooley and John Omally, unemployed bachelors of this parish. And that Victorian time traveller who's crash-landed on the allotments. Surely with all these stalwarts working for the cause, Brentford's football ground can be saved? Would it were so, but this is Brentford and ancient forces of evil are forever stirring in the borough: Old Testament terrors, Lovecraftian loathsomes and beasties from the bottomless pit. And if the team make it through to the final, it's going to be a match that no one will forget. What with the fate of mankind hanging upon the result. And everything. In this, the first ever Book of Brentford, which is also the second book in The Witches of Chiswick trilogy, the Father of Far Fetched Fiction spins an epic yarn which will no doubt become a modern classic.

Knees Up Mother Earth Reviews

'..the man is currently on a roll, producing some of his best work and KNEES UP MOTHER EARTH may even be his very best book yet.' - STARBURST MJ Simpson "Crazy, classic Rankin" - Daily Mirror "Rankin's blend of humour and originality is stamped all over it... guaranteed to keep you hooked. Another thoroughly enjoyable tale from Robert Rankin - DREAMWATCH "A very English form of insanity". - Jon Courtenay Grimwood GUARDIAN "Knees Up Mother Earth finds itself standing tall in the company of the other titles of the now legendary Brentford collection. a fable so richly embroiled with hilarious word-play, literary tom-foolery and ingeniously crafted narrative, you might consider anyone else's offerings prosaic by comparison. Laughing uncontrollably will only be the half of it." - ALIEN ON LINE
