 After slipping through the cracks of modern life and into the amoral underground beyond work-a-day society, George F finds himself at the heart of London’s political frontline, where anarchy, alcohol and addiction stalk the streets of a different city to the one you know. 

From life on the street to behind the barricades, from the occupation of derelict buildings to inevitable evictions and confrontation with law and order, from euphoria to despair, Total Shambles follows the journey of an idealistic writer as he tries to thrive and survive in the contentious world of squatting in London. 

James' view:
If Wendy Holden wrote a novel about squatting... it's like that, only memorable. A page turner that doesn't dissapear from the memory once devoured. There's also a wonderful poem in the middle. Worth getting the book just for that. 

Total Shambles is a fantastic piece of work, everything that writing should be – funny, moving, exciting, wild. A history lesson, a polemic, a picaresque adventure story, and, at big and pulsing heart, an attack on the shameless, state-encouraged worship of money and power and possessions and the tiny-mindedness and shrivelling of soul that is its consequence. Proof, if any more were needed, of the necessity of disobedience. It also contains the best description of a ketamine hit I’ve ever read.  - Niall Griffiths
