Angela Carter, in this bohemian novella, presents a contemporary love story in which the central characters are locked in a battle, the weapons of which are control and understanding. They are a pair for whom there can be no connection on anything other than a physical plateu - and even this connection is unstable, can be with-held or lost. Carter explores the notion of identity and ambiguity as she weaves her characters into an ever-more complicated tale of ambivalence and reliance, she poses the question, "In a relationship, where does one being end and the other begin, what happens to the individuals who become co-dependant?". Love, she suggests, is not the romantic vision we hold esteemed but, often, a cruel and injurious game in which there are no victors. Love is an excellent insight and a thrilling read - another gem from the Carter legacy.

Very interesting move away from magic realism to delusional reality. The objective review of relationships and responses was stark and heavily interwoven with immature expressions of relationships, and then, sexuality.
I am drawn to Carter's work as I am interested in the borderline space of real/ imagined and reality. This is a delicate tightrope exploration and allows the reader to divert, and come back from that line.

Prompt service,good price and no problems with the transaction at all, although I would have liked the cover picture shown and not an alternative.
I would shop with this company again.
