Cyril Wong is always a pleasure to read - he has a voice immediately personal and a craft that is immeasurably elegant. A less intense experience than Tilting our plates, however. It sometimes becomes a little prosaic, and other times too abstract fo...more

This actually turned out better than I thought it would, considering the heart shape symbol NLB stuck to its spine which was totally undeserved since it did not follow the typical romance novel plot. I liked the characters - enjoyed Allegria and Sylv...more

“Kevin tried to sleep with a pillow tight over his face, and he nearly suffocated himself. When he tiptoed over to close the door, they were talking in a subdued tone on the narrow couch. Colette's bare legs were curled up on the pillows, her head riding on the camelback motion of his chest. But her eyes were open, and she looked more adrift than comforted. In a tired baritone, Jerry was talking about prison. It was a horror story -- about the echoing screams of young kids and eyeballs cut open with smuggled razor blades, beginning as the usual speech about the hell he'd seen. But somehow it bcame a lonesome country-western love song, about how every long night of his life he had dreamed of a woman like her-- quick-witted and beautiful and tenacious. It was more than Kevin expected from the man. He told her that if he could buy her safe passage out of this life, hers and Kevin's, he would; but it was hard with a teenage son always pressing to know more and a tiring and insatiable young girlfriend who wanted to devour the world. Think of the pressure on him. "You need to know that we're together like this partly because of you. You keep us up and running. I know it and Kevin knows it. I'm not a good person, Colette -- I never claimed to be, I don't want to be, and you can't expect me to be. But look me in the eye and accept me as a snake, and I'll tell you whatever you're waiting to hear: I need you, I want you, I hurt for you, down in the dust, honey, down in the dust of my bones."

She interrupted him with kisses that sounded like determined sips at a scalding drink.”
Peter Craig, Hot Plastic
