Amazon review:

By Mark Mayes on 25 Dec. 2016

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase

A novel of extraordinary wit and imagination. A tour de force of language and inventiveness. I have simply never read anything like it. Told in quite a baroque style, and replete with a cast of Shakespearean characters and scenarios, not to mention old Will himself, but set in modern times, “Out Damned Spot!” really stands on its own, and deserves a genre all to itself. A unique tale, told in a unique style, highly stylised, you might say. I have listened to the author’s adaptation of Zola on BBC radio recently, and found the dialogue and description in those plays equally compelling and memorable.

Highly recommended.

 

WARNING: Contains big concept story-line, and huge metaphors.
