While William Goldman will always be remembered fondly as the author of the novel. His other works such as the present volume are minor classics in their own right. For those that wondered if the author could successfully work in other genres we are pleased to present this volume as ample evidence that Goldman could write a gripping novel of psychological horror. The trope of a ventriloquist falling under the spell of his own alter-ego in the persona of his dummy is an old one. Goldman, however, shows a remarkable gift for re-imaging the plot in a novel wherein he uses a multitude of varying points of view and unreliable narrators to weave a web of kaleidoscopic psychological horror where nothing is necessarily what it seems and the central characters alcoholism and possible descent into madness serve to reinforce the novels complexity.Is a tour-de-force of its type and merits comparison to the very best of authors such as Ramsey Campbell and Peter Straub.
