Tanith Lee reminds me of Michael Moorcock in that she often had brilliant ideas but wrote too much too uickly The result was that her prose freuently has the feel of an Angela Carter first draft or a Jeanette Winterson fifth or sixth draft and her construction of longer stories is all over the place Imagine her as a snooker player the long pots would be fabulous but you d never feel she was wholly in control of the cue ball That s very much the case here as atmospheric evocations of the English seaside collide with a whole carnival s worth of urban weirdness One reviewer on here has compared the book to a David Lynch film and I think that s a good parallel There are wonderful individual scenes and moments but there s a lot that doesn t add up and whole chapters which simply don t work I can t imagine what it would have been like to be Lee s editorI suspect she was impossible to change On her day a brilliantly original and exciting writer but I don t think this is one of her better works maybe because I like her shorter fiction and rewritten fairy tales where she at least has the ghost of a decent plot to work with or maybe because it s just indecisive and can t determine which of its ideas and themes to develop to best advantage
