There is something about the interlacing of the dream world and reality, and of the dream-as-fantasy and dream-as-nightmare too, that I find continually haunts my waking and sleeping moments...
Amaryllis is a great heroine, with her different aspects waking and dreaming, her t-shirts and her elusiveness; and Peter Diggs' sense of loss pervades so much of his life as well as his art; one can't help hoping that they can both jump off the bus before it reaches its terrible destination. And of course, RH's own fantasies play a major part in the book.
As ever, much of the delight is in the telling of the story and Hoban's wonderfully sparse and telling use of language. And it contains on of my favourite Hoban one-liners: 'Trust me, I'm a weirdo.'
It's a wonderful book for late at night- if you're away from your lover, read them a bit just before you drift off to sleep, and they should turn up in your dreams with you.
