5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanted tales, 16 Dec 2003
Ian H. Boyter "jazzzzer" (Edinburgh, Scotland) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anna Tambour's wide-ranging collection of short stories 'Monterra's Deliciosa & other Tales &'
is a book you will want to read and read again. Her torrent of ideas and images comes at you fast and furious and washes you along in the current.
Dealing irreverently with a mix of ethical and moral issues as well as common-or-garden domestic and cultural situations she spins her enchanted tales in a refreshingly cliché-free yet richly-composted prose style which is never contrived. Her very personal cast of odd-ball characters; animals, humans, fish, insects, plants, machines and deities, interact in unexpected and thought-provoking ways.
These intriguing parables, fables and yarns, some only one or two pages long, some preceded with verses, are constantly entertaining, sometimes baffling and demanding, often comic and playfully surreal and now and then downright mad. If you like being led down the garden path and finishing up dazed, wandering in the wild Australian bush, then Tambour is for you.
