THE SYLLABUS OF ERRORS

There’s a lovely and positive review of THE SYLLABUS OR ERRORS by Laura Wilkinson on her blog.

“I’ll talk a little more about Abyssinia, not only because it’s my favourite story in the collection (though it’s a close call with I Remember Nothing and The First Suggestion of Night), but also because, for me, it encapsulates all that is to be admired in the twelve tales: well-structured, compelling narratives, insightful, pin-point accurate characterisation, compassion and oodles of wit. As in the best tragedies laugh-out-loud moments are juxtaposed with the shocking and moving, the poignancy all the more powerful for the humour that precedes it.”
