The Condition of Muzak

by Michael Moorcock
Release date: 1977
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

The chaos and decay which permeated A Cure for Cancer and The English Assassin has devolved further into a surreal Europe of splintered city states. Jerry Cornelius, increasingly morphing into his role as Pierrot, has lost the power to change or even affect events and narrows his quest to an everlasting search for his true love, his sister Catherine.

”The Condition of Muzak considers the process of living as a harlequinade and is, for me, a most moving summation... Here we move through Mr. Moorcock's obsessions, Bob Dylan, the Arthurian Legend, through chrono-zones – behold the pun! to bisexuality, with a small sideswipe at Stanley Kubrick on the way. The realisation comes that Jerry is seeking sanctuary in different universes of Time in separate private mythologies. As indeed, is the implication, are we all...” – Tom Hutchinson, The Times
