I don t know that I m impartial I m a couple of years or so younger than Garner not a classicist and I just remember him at school Old Mancunians will know what I mean I also saw him play Antony with Dudley Moore as Enobarbus Alderley Edge I don t know all that well I come from a little further down the Bollin valley I ve just read backwards The Voice that Thunders with a good deal of unexpected emotion If you read it that way round you may think you know a bit about Strandloper before you read it I ve only come to both books a uarter of a century late and I ve just read the opening chapter of Strandloper for the first time I suppose as a result I did know a little beforehand But none of it blunted the power and the portent of the opening pages or concealed their roots I m afraid Garner is the real thing So much so that the Nobel Prize for Literature would I hope will mean nothing to him The man who could write about that as deftly and deeply as he did has become the craftsman his ancestors were That is worth any number of Regius Professorships Claiming Her unexpected emotion If you read it that way round you may think you know a bit about Strandloper before you read it I ve only come to both books a Dragon ActuallyA Tale of Two Dragons uarter of a century late and I ve just read the opening chapter of Strandloper for the first time I suppose as a result I did know a little beforehand But none of it blunted the power and the portent of the opening pages or concealed their roots I m afraid Garner is the real thing So much so that the Nobel Prize for Literature would I hope will mean nothing to him The man who could write about that as deftly and deeply as he did has become the craftsman his ancestors were That is worth any number of Regius Professorships

REVIEW Ø PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ï Alan Garner Alan Garner Ï 6 SUMMARY REVIEW Strandloper William the Cheshire bricklayer and William the Aboriginal spiritual leader as William is true to his fate The result is extraordinary. You don t so much read Strandloper as immerse yourself in it and let it push and pull you about It s familiar Garner right enough with added metaphysical transcendency or a bit bonkers if you prefer It s not a book you ll forget in a hurry
