This was a stunning and haunting collection of stories that I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys beautiful, lyrical, challenging writing. Felix appears in various dates in history and shows men what it is to be with a soul mate and to accept who they are, and who they can be.
The one story I found myself skipping through, oddly enough, was the longest of the stories… because I was in the mindset of shorter stories it just appeared to be too long, so it took me a while to get to enjoy it. However…
The western front
The Nubian's boy
Alabaster in waset
A dog called Sartre – The final story for sure… very cleverly written and it choked me up.
It is, in places, a challenging set of stories to read. This I think makes each one all the more rewarding when you finish.
I must admit I was confused by the blurb which didn't appear to tell you much in the way of story line. I was also overwhelmed by the first story which isn't easy to read. However, once I was inside this palette of colours I couldn't stop reading.
Thank you Mr Kean.
