Sylvia Brownrigg…to suggest that this dazzling, complex novel has anything quite as conventional as a plot would be misleading. There are plenty of mysteries…but Barker enjoys the journey of her storytelling too much to worry about when she'll arrive at her destination. So great are her humor, wit and erudition that she's able to charm us into sharing her tolerance of uncertainty and confusion. And despite her fondness for narrative detours, Barker knows how to keep things moving.
