Captain Mark

Guardian Unlimited Books | Review | Fasten your seatbelts

This year's Carnegie wine, Mal Peet, reviews Turbulence by Jan Mark:

Turbulence crackles with excellent one-liners ("women are from Venus, men are from Battersea Dogs' Home, Gran says"), running jokes (Canadians are only dull because they are planning to take over the world, sometimes disguised as Hungarians) and meditations upon such matters as why, in westerns, townships are never built on hills or rivers. But the book is a risky flight, and the late, great Captain Mark, while announcing our safe arrival, reminds us how fragile we are.
