LoveReading Says

LoveReading Says

An exuberantly entertaining magic realist quest that sees a Cambridge Organ Scholar travel to Rome in search of love, with extraordinarily unexpected results.

It all started with a pip, for it was The Pip that brought Malory and maths genius Louiza together in the eaves of a Cambridge church. When she vanishes after their first encounter, Malory resolves that “the Pip would be his guide” as he searches for her. The road he takes leads - naturally - to Rome. But nothing in this labyrinthine, playfully philosophical fable is simple. There are no smooth, straight roads for Malory, who discovers in Rome that he’s the heir to the Kingdom of Septimania and subsequently hailed King of the Jews, and more besides.

The style is nimble, the language lithe and infused with a wonderful sense of whimsy. Indeed, something of the tone put me in mind of Alice in Wonderland at times. Brilliantly bonkers, quick-witted and compelling, this joyous jamboree of a book demands one’s full attention, and thoroughly deserves more than one reading. ~ Joanne Owen
