About the Book

When drugged-up Time Traveller and '80s musical burnout Rock Section and his fellow English hooligans get kidnapped during Italia '90, there are ruinous implications. But now Rock has returned to Sardinia one final time to settle some scores and uncover the truth. He believes only Dutch cult leader Judge Barry Hertzog, still incarcerated on the island for the crime, can provide the answers. But through prescription drugs, the persistence of his driver Anna and a quest for the hidden ancient doorways strewn around Sardinia's only highway, the 131, Rock will discover that a greater truth awaits him.

Judgement, consequences, hoodwinking on a grand scale, Gnosticism versus agnosticism ... Julian Cope's One Three One is a Gnostic whodunnit that pursues readers' memories of all previous fiction into a peat bog and impales them with seven-foot-long pikes.

  • Julian Cope

    Julian Cope is a visionary musician, antiquarian and musicologist. His work with the Teardrop Explodes and as a solo artist marks him as one of British music's great innovators. His studies The Modern Antiquarian and The Megalithic European have established him as an authority on ancient history and his joyful surveys Krautrocksampler and Japrocksampler have become required reading. He has also penned two successful volumes of autobiography, Head On and Repossessed, and continues to perform, solo and with his band, the Black Sheep.
