Guardian Review

S F Said gives Tim Bowler's latest novel a positve review but wonders:

One senses that plot mechanics are not where Bowler's heart lies. The visionary, the numinous, the unexplained - that is the soul of this book, and that is what distinguishes the best of Bowler's work (most notably the spine-tingling River Boy, which won the Carnegie medal in 1998). It would be wonderful to see what might happen if he threw aside conventional expectations, and wrote a book that didn't feel the need to tie up every plot strand, but went as deeply and fearlessly into the mysterious as it could.
