9780140043105: Mooncranker's Gift

The celebrated Mooncracker, now a pitiful alcoholic deserted by his secretary, his mind almost deranged by drink, was once a formative influence on James Farnaby. He sends James to find Miranda, his secretary and James's childhood sweatheart, at the Turkish spa where sexual liberalism prevails.

Review:

Intricately wrought story with abundant, often strikingly beautiful, use of symbols.. . . The progress of the book is tumescent, gathering sexual pace, and reaching a climax.

About the Author:

Barry Unsworth (1930-2012), who won the Booker Prize for Sacred Hunger, was a Booker Prize finalist for Morality Play and was long-listed for the Man Booker Prize for The Ruby in Her Navel.
