Never having read Martin Millar before, Milk, Sulphate, and Alby Starvation was a wonderful surprise.
Never having read Martin Millar before, Milk, Sulphate, and Alby Starvation was a wonderful surprise. An unexpected joy. A beautiful, bouncing bundle of book loving. I have read nearly ever Martin Millar book he's put to paper, and not a single one has disappointed me yet. I was so excited to find out some of his books are being re-released after being out of print for years. I had to track down my copy of Milk Sulphate, and Alby Starvation through expensive used sellers. I am always shocked to find these books are not more widely known.
Like all of Martin Millar’s books, Milk, Sulphate, and Alby Starvation was amusing and enjoyable and a bit frenetic. Don't let this be the first Martin Miller book you read, several others are better, but I do like the story telling, the setting and the plot. It was just a smidge rougher than his others. Lux the Poet was the same.
Martin Millar is a Scottish writer from Glasgow, now resident in London. Milk, Sulphate and Alby Starvation 1987. He also writes the Thraxas series of fantasy novels under the pseudonym Martin Scott. The novels he writes as Martin Millar dwell on urban decay and British sub-cultures, and the impact these have on a range of characters, both realistic and supernatural. There are elements of magical realism, and the feeling that the boundary between real life and the supernatural is not very thick. Most of them are set in Brixton, Millar's one-time place of residence.
A re-issue of Martin Millar's classic novel which recounts the life of Alby Starvation, the first true British anti-hero of the giro generation. A strange and wonderful story of Brixton low-life, seedy gutter violence and manic paranoia that's as relevant now as when first published in the 1980s.
The sometime narrator, Alby Starvation, is a down-on-his-luck amphetamine runner whose main triumphs in life thus far have been to amass a large collection of comics and to cure himself of the ailments brought on by a serious milk allergy.
Millar's first novel to appear in England-a paranoid romp through Brixton lowlife that's a trifle trashier than Lux .
Unlike Lux (the vainest male on earth), the antihero of this outing is paranoid Alby Starvation, small-time dealer in comic books and drugs who reports his low self-esteem with a stand-up comic's flair. Mirrors are ""malicious objects.
In Martin Millar’s surreal tale of the urban counterculture-a world full of shoplifting, deaththreats, paranoia, and video game arcades-Alby’s frantic struggle to avoid being shot falls somewhere between Irvine Welsh and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

Understandably, he’s pretty excited when simply eliminating a food group from his diet makes him feel much better, and he spreads the word. There must be something in the milk in Brixton, because when others start removing milk from their diets, they also are.
