For more than two decades, Clive Barker has twisted the worlds of horrific and surrealistic fiction into a terrifying, transcendent genre all his own. With skillful prose, he enthralls even as he horrifies; with uncanny insight, he disturbs as profoundly as he reveals. Evoking revulsion and admiration, anticipation and dread, Barker's works explore the darkest contradictions of the human condition: our fear of life and our dreams of death.Review:
‘A gripping story of powerful erotic intensity’
‘Barker’s characteristic juxataposition of fascination and fear find eloquent expression in this novella which treats death as metamorphosis into another state of being.’
