Millar's best - a dream of a book March 23 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Imagine, if you can, a crazy cross between Irvine Welsh and P G Wodehouse. A storyline of repulsive, compulsive sex and knock-down farce. Martin Millar inhabits a South London landscape where old magic comes up from the gutter and deep artistic longings are shipwrecked on the everyday struggles of downbeat life. I can't believe Martin Millar is not more widely known and loved. Over the last ten years, he has honed his craft, through "Milk, Sulphate and Alby Starvation", and "Lux the Poet", to a new high point in "Dreams of Sex and Stage Diving". Don't be deceived by the surface of nihilism, farce and hard humour. There is a deep thread of optimism here, which steers clear of whimsy. There is even a moral - and a whole new way to view some of Shakespeare's best lines.
Again, Millar's best. Jan. 21 2001
By Michael Lawrie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I agree with Peter's review - This one is Millar's best book and the hero Elfish is the best character he's ever created (if she is real, he won't tell me where she lives so I can marry her).
Possibly not enough fairys for a Millar book, but hey, you can't have everything and they would possibly distract a bit from the plot. If you read this one, you'll read all of his others and definately not be dissapointed.
Oh yea, buy more than one copy! I always end up giving my Millar books away to people to try and get them reading him and I can't really give more praise than that.
