...And the Angel with Television Eyes explores the region where fantasy meets reality. This surreal journey of self-discovery and transformation at once questions the nature of our world, and redefines it in the context of 21st century pop culture and technology. It takes a writer of John Shirley's talent and audacity to bring together elements as disparate as Shakespeare, Nietzsche, on-line role playing games, soap operas, and classic mythology - binding them together, creating a heady mélange on, above, and below the streets of Manhattan.

A Strange, Cynical, Beautiful Story
An imaginative and original fantasy story. A definite recommendation for fans of Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere and the Matthew Swift books.
Special credit to the narrator who imbues an unlikable protagonist with a sense of humanity and sympathy and who makes the surreal, bizarre world seem approachable and possible.
