it was amazing

A beautifully constructed prose piece (novella),
filled with artifice of the right kind. It's a strange tale set in a French chateau and it seems to have sent reviewers
scurrying after a category. They usually settle for 'Gothic' - I don't think so. I see the book as sliding
through various 'categories' like German Romanticism,
French nouveau roman (Michel Butor, shades of Nathalie Sarraute), mystery.
