liv: Bookshelf labelled: Caution. Hungry bookworm (bookies)
Author: Tanith Lee

Details: (c) 1976-1977 Tanith Lee; Pub Hamlyn Paperbacks 1979; ISBN 0 600 33001 X

Verdict: Don't bite the sun / Drinking sapphire wine has some interesting ideas but feels dated and heavy-handed.

Reasons for reading it: I thought I had read somewhere that Lee is very good at explorations of sexuality, but it's possible I'm confusing this book with something else.

How it came into my hands: One of the very fun Charing Cross Road second-hand bookshops.

detailed review (spoilery) )

Basically, my feeling is that this book has some strong elements but really hasn't aged well.

Soundbite

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
