Reviews

Impressive... Though [the story] suggests a number of allegorical interpretations, the surface of the narrative proceeds with enough sheer pleasure and lack of pretension to deeper meanings to ensure that these are rarely overt... Gender, sexuality, the cultures they impose, and the restrictions imposed on them by cultures, are a form of imprisonment; yet so, too, is the attempt to evade them. * Times Literary Supplement * Haunting, often hallucinogenic. * Los Angeles Times * A writer of much originality. * Chicago Tribune *
