About this title

Synopsis:

Recovering from a suicide attempt that has left him in a coma, wildlife photographer Will Swift finds himself reliving the seminal events of his childhood. When he awakens he finds that the magic, horror and revelations he glimpsed as a child are returning to find him.

Review:

A boy has an encounter with a man who causes extinctions of other species, so he grows up to be a man who documents (and thus appeals for a halt to) those extinctions. This dark fantasy tale is unlike Clive Barker's other recent ones: it is more tightly plotted, and more of this world. In a sequence of well-executed stories within stories (comparable to Russian dolls), Barker unfolds a compelling examination of what it means to be human, to be a man, and to be a gay man--on a planet where aging, disease, and death bring "the passing of things, of days and beasts and men he'd loved." A satisfying long novel packed with vivid images, memorable characters, and a melancholy mood that reaches for hope.
