    Fascinating, but lurid. . .

    The Wish House is a fascinatingly disturbing book. Richard (aka Ricardo a¿la Lucia) encounters a nude woman sunbathing on the grounds of Wish House¿named because of the sound of the wind makes in the trees around the house. Thus starts an erotic encounter with Lucia (mother to Clio and Joe and wife/muse of Jay Dalton) and her family. While not ALL the lurid details are exposed, many are alluded to, making this a story that really requires a mature audience. The story itself delves into the life of an artist with fascinating excerpts from notes the artist, himself, makes as well as published essays and explanations of his art. Richard seduced by Clio Dalton in order to manipulate him into posing for Jay Dalton, and the entire family¿s somewhat unconventional, mystical, hippie lifestyle is revealed. The characterizations are fascinating, and the storyline is as well. I found myself becoming more interested in Celtic mythology as a result of reading it. I also found myself drawn to the tormented artist¿s character. It¿s a great read, and a fast one, but definitely is not going to be one that is enjoyed by a more conservative audience.

    Perfect Gothic atmosphere - creepy and disturbing. My favorite n

    Perfect Gothic atmosphere - creepy and disturbing. My favorite novel from Celia Rees. Often overlooked by American readers, this is a YA book definitely worth reading. Has is all: sex, drugs, witchcraft, seduction, and Art folded into a layered coming of age story.
