About This Item

Pan Macmillan, UK, 2006. Paperback. As New. Paperback. 80 pages. *** PUBLISHING DETAILS: Pan Macmillan, UK, 2006. *** CONDITION: As New ... Covers have no creasing or wear. Spine is uncreased. Pages are clean and unmarked and in excellent condition. This book is an unread copy. *** ABOUT THIS BOOK: That Mark Haddon's first book after "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" was a poetry collection perhaps came as a surprise to his legions of fans; that it is a collection of such virtuosity and range did not. The gifts so admired in Haddon's prose are in strong evidence here too - the humanity of his voices, the dark humour and the uncanny ventriloquism - but Haddon is also a writer of considerable seriousness, lyric power and surreal invention, and "The Talking Horse and the Sad Girl and the Village Under the Sea" combines bittersweet love-lyrics, lucid and bold new versions of Horace, comic set-pieces, lullabies, wry postmodern shenanigans (including a note from the official board of censors on "18" certificate poetry), and an entire John Buchan novel condensed to five pages. Consolidating Haddon's reputation as our most powerful myth-weavers and spell-makers, "The Talking Horse and the Sad Girl and the Village Under the Sea" also confirms him as one of the most outrageous and freewheeling imaginations at work in contemporary literature. *** Quantity Available: 2.
