Barker is quite unique as a writer. She uses words like few others.. Some pages have identical text. Some have no text at all. Symbols are favoured over characters. Her books read like poetry.
No two books by her are similar. They are quirky but clever. When you open her books you never know what to expect. This novel is very odd indeed. Miracle A lives in a strange world. She is named after a star.
Barker is a visionary writer in style, and content. She likes religious visions and theology. This novel is essentially about God. There is much wit and Barker's exuberance shines through.
