Shining at the bottom of the sea
It's a really big concept, and executed beautifully. One of the stories shinjng up as a film later, and the two reviews of it are conflicting. My full review of this book is much longer than the excerpt posted below; find it at the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter. I am one of those who appreciated the faux scholarship and painstaking footnotes even more than the strange tales themselves. Refresh and try again.
