Book Description Tartarus Press, 2001. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. NEW UK HARDBACK. LIMITED Ed. of 500. DJ in Clear, ARCHIVAL MYLAR WRAP. NO remainder mark. | SHIPS AIRMAIL INTERNATIONALLY! Robert Aickman has received due recognition for his hauntingly poetic and psychologically charged ¿strange¿ tales, but what sort of early life fuelled their creation? The Attempted Rescue chronicles Aickman¿s childhood and youth, over which looms the figure of his eccentric father, a man almost entirely resistant to ¿normal¿ family life, and a man who Aickman describes as dying ¿from loss of luxuries¿. So much of Aickman¿s childhood appears bizarre and unyielding of explanation that it is little wonder that his short stories are so odd. Aickman invests the book with his startling, often politically incorrect opinions on politics, the modern industrial world and his rather bleak view of sexual relationships. But there is also much achingly heart-felt nostalgia in the atmospheric descriptions of pre-World War Two London, the theatre and the large country house of his singular Great Uncle and Aunt. Aickman displays more than a passing acquaintance with psycho-analysis in this fascinating autobiog-raphy, and we can infer that the disturbing images with which he invests his fiction are there by design. Then again, when such a master of the weird tale tells the story of his own life, how far can we be sure that he is not manipulating our expectations as subtly as he does in his fiction?.
