The Tick of the Biological Clock. "The Philosopher's Doll" by Amanda Lohrey. [review]
Many novels display some of the characteristics that encourage readability: consistency of theme, soundness of structure, steadiness of pace, depth of characterisation and elegance of style. In "The Philosopher’s Doll", Lohrey demonstrates that she has consummate control of all of these skills. Lohrey’s beautifully balanced, expertly crafted novel is a treat for head and for heart.
