Well-intentioned and at the same time sadly indulgent as [Temple] modifies history to suit the MTV generation.

Goes a long way toward capturing the compelling delirium of opium among a crowd of freethinking British iconoclasts.

Successfully gets to the heart of the obsessions that drive great writers -- and will have you dusting down your old school copy of the 'Lyrical Ballads'!
