Aidan Chambers makes you tie yourself into knots just thinking. He's not a shy writer; he'll plunge in, tackle anything. His writing falls under the 'so-life-like-it's-scary' category; some of the emotions could have come directly from your secret heart.
Dance on my Grave is about homosexual love, but also about so many other things that it is a slice of life, with all its many strands. It is also funny, in a way that The Toll Bridge, Postcards From No man's Land and Now I Know aren't. I got the giggles for ages in some parts, and still laugh out loud when I think of them; the fight!!!!
But the way he writes is out of this world. His books are going to stay with me all my life.
