Open Letter to Clio Gray,
This review is from: Types of Everlasting Rest (Paperback)
Dear Ms Gray,
I have a wee complaint to make.
I bought your book on Saturday, in Ullapool, understanding it to be an analysis of the different forms that long term repose might take. (As per your title: Types of Everlasting Rest) Imagine my surprise to find that, instead of slipping off into the academic and rather dreamy state of contemplation that I had expected, I found myself in a mysterious proto-European twilight world surrounded by a forest of marvellous stories! I had to be quick on my feet, you bet!
While the outcome in my case was a happy one, I dread to think what might have happened to an inexperienced reader wandering into such a disconcertingly rich and wonderful collection. Would they ever find their way out? While I applaud your skill and imagination, I am not at all sure that you have properly considered where responsibility might lie in such circumstances.
Concerned, of Strathpeffer
