Overview

The Devil's Bridge by Edgar O Lake

"Could a man's existence be like a bridge, poised between the water that birthed him, and the earth that would bury him?"

This is the question pressing on Harsh Rhyder as he and his troupe of twelve masqueraders make their way across the island paradise they're bent on exploring.

Bad begets bad, and L'Abbott, one of their number is killed. Infiltration by ghostly lepers follows, and, finally a terrible ordeal on board a raft at sea jolts Xiphegna and her fellow survivors into facing some unpleasant truths about their lives...

Masquerading, migration and the ghosts of history haunt this richly-veined fable of exile, reutn and redemption. Baroque prose, island patois and sinister symbolism mark a flamboyant text that hints at Bergman's 'Seventh Seal', Bunyan's 'Pilgrim's Progress', and the myths and legends of West Indian and African tradition.
