Arabat by Clive Barker, Hardcover

January 7, 2018

Date range read: December 2017- Jan 2018

Picked up at Will Durant Public Library, Hollywood

What an absolutely gorgeous volume, who glossy, heavy paper carries beautifully suggestive color illustrations by the author to embellish but never overpower the wonderful imagery he creates with the writing.

Each chapter plays like a new thought experiment, but are linked one to the next in a weaving twisting yarn.

This is not a horror novel, as might be expected from the creator of Hellraiser, but rather a whimsical, perhaps only sometimes slightly macabre comedic and mythic fable.

So nice to hold this tome in my hands – the tactile nature is a major component of its virtue.
