Read in May, 2009

Well this is another weird one from McGrath. It was very Gothic in style -- overdone and melodramatic -- but still contained many of the deviant characters he loves to write about. I still was not sure that the narrator's reality was in fact what was actually happening and had actually happened -- but that seems to be a theme of McGrath's.

It was a short and engaging read -- but not his best book -- I suspect one of his earlier ones. Thanks again to Rich for loan of the book.
