Love one of the Particles is virtuosic storytelling, straight away a poignant critique of our romance with know-how and a love letter to language. In a whirlwind travel of house, time, and background, Norman Lock creates worlds that veer wildly from the ordinary to the supernatural through the pre-modern, mechanical, and electronic a while. no matter if reintroducing characters from the pages of Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain, Franz Kafka, and Gaston Leroux, or acting dizzying screens of literary pyrotechnics, those tales are not anything under a compendium of the marvelous.
