Write The First Customer Review

A remarkable and resonant collection of essays written over a period of 25 years, offering a retrospective of the author's changing ideas on literature and culture - on fiction, drama, religion, language and fairy tale. The different sections range from explorations of our taste for the miraculous, whether it be the Virgin Mary and angels, or voodoo and showers of toads, to our need for heroes and villains, from Joan of Arc to Myra Hindley.
