Summary:

Why does this novel's narrator, who practices the art of stillness and touches nothing without the protection of white gloves, who collects useless articles only because their owners have loved them, come to seem, not odd, but supremely human and much like us? Edward Carey has written a neo-Gothic classic of truly startling originality that John Fowles called "easily the most brilliant new fiction I've seen this year".
