Literary synopsis Sent to a remote Scottish community to pose as its artist-in-residence, the narrator of Stewart Home's provocative novel discovers an undercurrent of corruption, wife-swapping and military secrets. Meanwhile in London a counter-narrative revolves around pubs, clubs, fights and feuds; making money, selling souls, trying to break on through. A satire on contemporary art; a hymn to classic soul music; a meditation on celebrity; a deconstruction and rewriting of modern literature; *Memphis Underground* is all this and more.
