9780140097511: Landscape with Landscape

The titles of this collection of six loosely connected stories, Landscape with Freckled Woman, Sipping the Essence, The Battle of Acosta Nu, A Quieter Place than Clun, Charlie Alcock's Cock, and Landscape with Artist suggest the range of the writer's vision. Some of the stories here have elements of surreal fantasy and all seek to involve the reader in the construction of their meaning. Even when we are on foreign earth we are never far from our own private landscape.
