Sex Wars by Marge Piercy

Typical of Marge Piercy's style of multiple narrators, some actual historical characters and others imaginary, this is a look at the early years of woman's suffrage in the 19th century. Testament to her skill as a writer the imagined characters are every bit as fleshed out and 'real' as the actual historical characters and the historical background detail is wonderfully drawn. It is a fascinating and involving read.
The Ghost in Love by Jonathan Carroll
The Ghost in Love by Jonathan Carroll
Jonathan Carroll is a master storyteller and The Ghost in Love is one of his best. Let him lead you by the hand through introducing the main characters and then through the looking glass of his imagination where we are all literally the sum of our parts, ghosts can cook and dogs can speak and there are most definitely more things in heaven and earth than are known in our philosophies (apologies to Will S. for mangling the quote!)

I vividly remember watching this back in '81 when the BBC first showed it. It made no sense whatsoever but was riveting.

30 years later it still makes no sense, seems of a completely different era (chock-ful of technology, techno speak but pre personal computer, pre mobile phone) but is still pretty riveting stuff. I forgot how pretty Sting was back in the day.
