Book Description

Aug. 1 2010
Disturbed By Her Song collects the work of Esther Garber and her half-brother Judas Garbah, the mysterious family of writers that Tanith Lee has been channeling for the past few years. Possibly autobiographical, frequently erotic and darkly surreal, their fiction takes place in a variety of eras and places, from Egypt in the 1940s, to England in the grip of the Pre-Raphaelites, to gaslit Paris and to the shadowy landscapes carved by the mind and memory. The themes of youth and age stream through these tales of homosexual love and desire. These stories recall, at times, the work of Lawrence Durrell, Colette, and Angela Carter.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful Dec 21 2010
By R Piper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've gone back and forth on Tanith Lee -- I found most of her older work fantastic, and then the Venus/Venice stories completely impenetrable. These stories, set in a nearly-here world, are among her most accessible. Lucidly constructed and beautifully written, recommended for both new fans and old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tanith Lee-Brilliant Oct. 17 2010
By Joanna M. Bilof - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Tanith Lee has been my favorite author for well over twenty years. She never fails to enthrall me with her writing and her storytelling. I own quite a bit of her work, however I am still missing several pieces. Back in the day I never had trouble purchasing her works, over the last few years it's been difficult in obtaining Tanith's books. I don't understand why it is difficult to get British writers works here.
As for Tanith, Amazon lately has been the only place when I can find her. I wish they had more available.
She never fails to amaze me and keep me entertained.I am waiting for Tanith to do a sequel to her Mortal Suns book, it was outstanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Collection Oct. 6 2010
By S. Singleton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Tanith Lee's Disturbed by Her Song is a linked collection of stories by Tanith Lee, writing as and with Esther Garber and Judas Garbah. The introduction explains how this curious relationship works and provides an intriguing opening for the collection, laying the ground for the coming tricks and evasions when it comes to such matters as identity and time. The theme of love, and particularly erotic love, runs through the stories, love the light shining through the prism of youth and age - innocence, loss and regret - and love's ability to illuminate, inspire and shape, even when it is unrequited, painful or lost.
The collection contains nine stories, set in various times and various settings, including Paris, Egypt and England. Each place is beautifully evoked, and as you would expect from Lee, the writing is exquisite. Variously lush, wry, tender, moving, darkly surreal, deliciously erotic, the stories possess some of the tropes of fantastic fiction (a maybe ghost, a possible werewolf) but it isn't a fantasy collection per se. Instead, as in Angela Carter's fiction, intrusions of the strange and unearthly seem to be perceptions skewed by wishing, memory and desire, as though the internal landscape of dreams and fantasies drift into the mundane world - a 'real' world already coloured by the whims and wishes of the one-step-away minds of Garber and Garbah.
Lee's writing is rigorously intelligent. In this collection, I responded particularly also to the strong undercurrent of compassion, and especially compassion for the indignities and losses associated with age,as in the stories 'Black-eyes Susan' and 'Fleurs en Hiver'.
Disturbed By Her Song far transcends any needless compartmentalisation as fantasy fiction, or gay fiction - it is a rare gem, a beautiful, puzzling, fabulous collection by a writer at the height of her powers. It deserves widespread, serious attention. Yes I love it - highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gay and Lesbian Life in a Magical Realist mode Sept. 6 2010
By Craig L. Gidney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"The Crow," "The Kiss" and "Ne Que V'on Desir" are among the finest texts Ms. Lee has written--magical, dark and erotic. "Black Eyed Susan" and "Death and the Maiden" are a kind of lesbian gothic fiction, while the title story will bring a tear to the reader's eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forever a fan of Tanith Lee's work March 29 2011
By C. N. Platania - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have been a fan of Tanith Lee for several years and the resurgence of her work this year is a dream. This collection has such variety. I enjoyed the Esther stories most but all had appeal. If this is your first time reading Lee, it's a good place to start.
