These are tiny, jewel-like pieces, evocative of a world of outsiders who change everything, of unbidden guests who challenge the status quo, of bodies that become unruly, and of landscapes that develop minds of their own.
Sue Harper is Emeritus Professor of Film History (University of Portsmouth), and has written a number of books on British cinema, but this is her first book of fiction. In her academic work, she was preoccupied by the repressed or forgotten aspects of cultural history, true also of her fiction. Ovid has been the inspiration for her ideas about transformation and change. The influence of Angela Carter and Margaret Atwood is also clearly present, as well as the artists Leonora Carrington and Dorothea Tanning.
