Comments & Further Information

A first UK edition trade paperback (large size : 152mm x 230mm) first printing.   UNREAD.  Bought new at publication and stored carefully ever since.

PLEASE NOTE : The author of this book is NOT the late Quentin Crisp of Naked Civil Servant fame.

SYNOPSIS:  “This book is the fifth original fiction collection from one of the true eccentrics of modern British writing  –  stories that blend erudite skill and a startling emotional intensity, classical elegance and unexpected experimentation, sophisticated miserablism and innocent beauty. A fairy tale as dark as they come amid a shattering clash of two opposing and poisoned personalities. A Meyrink-tinged dream of atavism and Italy that awakens the dreamer to philosophy and fate. A quiet and perfectly observed journey through the far reaches of Japan. Myth-working fantasy haunted by the motley ghosts of Lord Dunsany and Matsuo Basho, and by the imps of postmodernism. A vision of the afterlife where heaven and hell are entwined in torturous symbiosis.
