I'm Jack, Paperback / softback Book

I'm Jack Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

In this provocative novel Mark Blacklock portrays the true and complex history of John Humble, aka Wearside Jack, the Ripper Hoaxer, a timewaster and criminal, sympathetic and revolting, the man hidden by a wall of words, a fiction-spinner worthy of textual analysis.

In this remarkable work, John Humble leads the reader into an allusive, elusive labyrinth of interpretations, simultaneously hoodwinking and revealing.

I'm Jack is a riveting novel about truth, lies, prison and shame.

It is also a profound and furious love letter to Sunderland.

It is a puzzle, a hoax, a multi-voice portrait and a virtuoso assemblage of textual elements.

I'm Jack announces the arrival of a radically talented and innovative novelist.
