Tunnel Visions - Journeys of an Underground Philosopher (Paperback, New Ed): Christopher Ross Tunnel Visions - Journeys of an Underground Philosopher (Paperback, New Ed)

When Christopher Ross put on a hi-visibility vest and joined London Underground as a station assistant, he discovered a Plato's cave of reflection and human comedy, populated by streakers, buskers, onanists and angry commuters. A meditation on life, a philosophical enquiry into human nature and a profoundly funny dissection of urban madness. Christopher Ross, philosopher and traveller, decided to cease his journeyings and go underground, working for a year as a station assistant on Platform 6 (northbound Victoria Line) at Oxford Circus. After training school, where he is taught how not to electrocute himself and always to look a member of the public in the eye as they are assaulting you, he faces up to his new duties with a mixture of curiosity and foreboding. `Tunnel Visions' is a delightful mixture of lived experience in the sureal world of London's Underground and the more elevated ideas, thoughts and imaginings that experience provokes. Oxford Circus station, complete with its weeping wall, its streakers, buskers, onanists and cupboard containing one employee whose ideal working day was to sleep soundly 100 feet below ground, is a Plato's Cave of reflection and human comedy. Christopher Ross, a still point in the whirling stream of the bizarre and otherworldly life below ground, has written a profoundly funny book.

Triple bill of dramas set in the violent world of British football hooliganism. 'Rise of the Footsoldier' (2007) offers a gritty portrayal of the life of football hooligan Carlton Leach (Ricci Harnett), whose innate ferocity propels him into an escalating life of serious crime. Over the course of three decades, Leach 'progresses' from attack-dog hooligan to nightclub bouncer, before becoming involved with the ever-expanding drug scene - his passport into the criminal elite. In the action drama sequel 'Green Street 2' (2009), the rivalry between the West Ham firm and the Millwall crew escalates when several members of both clubs are jailed following the events of the first film, culminating in a brutal football match between the prisoners as a way of settling their differences once and for all. 'Cass' (2008) is based on the true story of a Jamaican baby who loses his parents and is subsequently adopted and raised by an elderly white couple in London. During his childhood Cass (Nonso Anozie) is forced to endure racist bullying, until one day he takes matters into his own hands and responds to the constant taunts with a violent outburst. Cass becomes addicted to the buzz of fighting and soon becomes one of the most feared and respected men in the city. Unfortunately, his new way of life eventually leads to an assassination attempt against him. Cass survives but is left with an important choice - to fully embrace the violence that has shaped his life or to make a completely new start.

An epic poem starring yoga aficionado George "Warshington" who turns both inward and towards a cast of characters who inspire his vision of leadership during the crucial year of 1776-77 in Valley of the Forge: his loyal, loving, and patient wife, Martha; the recovering, lovelorn, drunkard, "Mad" Anthony Wayne; his fellow yogi and personal assistant, Gibraltar and his wife, Rebekah; the mercurial turncoat, General Toothe; the alluring semi-widow, Mary Hughes Cooney; the gifted sculptor Joe and his muse, Felicia; the magical woods-witch, Miss Kitty, and, finally, local Indian Chief Maddywampus; the true spiritual centerpiece for the newly won territory of "America."

On November 25, 1970, the world renowned Japanese writer Yukio Mishima committed "seppuku" with his own antique sword. Mishima's spectacular suicide has been called many things: a hankering for heroism; a beautiful, perverse drama; a political protest against Japan's emasculated postwar constitution; the epitaph of a mad genius. Part travelogue, part biography, and part philosophical treatise, "Mishima's Sword" is the story of Christopher Ross's journey to find a sword and maybe an understanding of Mishima's country. The cold trail the author follows inspires a tale of the most engaging-and occasionally bizarre-sort, with glimpses of the real Japan that is not seen by tourists, with digressions on, among other things, bushido and socks, mutineers and Noh ghosts, nosebleeds and metallurgy-and even how to dress for suicide.
