A Cure for Cancer - Michael Moorcock Jerry Cornellius goes on the trail of Bishop Beesley. Weirdness and mayhem ensue.

I went on a Moorcock binge a few years ago and read nothing but until I was sick of him. Last year, I needed something to read while I was getting an oil change. I'd heard good things about Jerry Cornelius and decided to give it a try. It definitely wasn't what I was expecting. It had a very odd feel to it, a little like the weird feeling Richard Brautigan's Hawkline Monster gave me. The plot seemed secondary. Exploring the weirdness of the Jerry Cornelius character was the focus.
