She has already attracted the more or less serious attentions of Mr Stimpson (local estate agent and subterranean lecher) and Major Parry (something.of a poet since his retirement). To Gorse, undisturbed by her rabbity-toothedcharms, she represents simply an ideal opportunity to exercise his perverse and vicious genius...'Uniquely individual... He is the novelist of innocence, appallingly vulnerable, and of malevolence, coming out of some mysterious darkness of evil'-J.B. PriestleyA hypnotic writer'- Time Out
