5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant contribution to the art of the short story, 28 July 2004

This review is from: Lantern Lecture (Paperback)
This is one of my favourite books - desperately funny, horribly smart but thoughtful, every sentence stuffed full of ideas, or spare and elegant. The stories are very different but they all grab you and won't let go.
The only shame is that Adam Mars-Jones hasn't done much fiction since. Why did he stop? Is the critic's life really that rewarding?

4.0 out of 5 stars Review, 25 Nov 2002
This review is from: Lantern Lecture (Paperback)
This was a highly satisfying work--Mars-Jones writes capably and each word bares resonance of some sort or other. In his short story "Structural Anthropology" he manages to say rather a lot about rather a little in the way of subject matter. But this makes him a success-he is effectively making us address what it is to read a story.
