"You Come When I Call You" is not the best book I have ever read, and that is being kind. The book is about three very unbalenced adults who are experincing waking nightmares because of an event in their childhood. Douglas Clegg is not very forth coming with an explanation of where the bad guy (or girl) Wendy came from. We get her back story, but it makes little since. In fact very little in the book makes any since. It's like a combination of Stephen King and Hunter S. Thompson. The book is a nightmare logic, meaning it is all surreal images (and very disturbingly graphic) with almost no narritive thread. It's like a very bad acid trip. The three main charcters, Peter, Alison, and Charlie , all have their psyche so messed up by the event in childhood (they all seemed to have been possesed by a demon and killed everyone in their sleepy little southern California town) that they are not very useful narrating the action through. The book is almost 400 pages long, and it seems like much more than that. The book is like wading through soup. I have heard that Clegg is a good writer; I don't know, maybe I just started with the wrong book.
