Read in March, 2008

I thought Rose Tremain was first class until I read the title story. It reads very badly, but the other stories are, for the most part excellent.I particularly liked
The Kite Flyer, which is wistful and thought provoking about the nature of what we can worship, and then when things go wrong, end up doing. It is a surprise ending and a strong story. I liked the european setting of La plume de mon ami, and she can infer a lot sometimes quite subtly.
She is very good on abroad. Wildtrack is interesting about the nature of our aural faculty and touches on disability,
and how it can be overcome. All her stories, usually,touch on that hidden realm she magically captures. She can transmogfify the most mundane affair into something special.
