I am a huge fan of Carrington s work, especially The hearing Trumpet, which is one of my all time favorite books I was initially excited to finally track down a copy of the Stone Door but, as it turns out, it s not quite what I expected Written 30 years earlier, it is naturally a bit less polished It was also written after a dark time in Carrington s life, after her family sent her to a mental hospital, her estrangement from Max Earnst and subsequent marriage of convenience to a Mexican diplo I am a huge fan of Carrington s work, especially The hearing Trumpet, which is one of my all time favorite books I was initially excited to finally track down a copy of the Stone Door but, as it turns out, it s not quite what I expected Written 30 years earlier, it is naturally a bit less polished It was also written after a dark time in Carrington s life, after her family sent her to a mental hospital, her estrangement from Max Earnst and subsequent marriage of convenience to a Mexican diplomat to escape her family and the Second World War All of this is bound to have an effect on one s writing, naturally The esoteric symbolism is laid on thick and it amounts to littlethen heavily symbolic dream sequences loosely knitted together Intriguing, but not as well formed a story If you must, and you must, an excerpt from the Nate D 2113 list of novels which will survive because they must survive If you must, and you must, an excerpt from the Nate D 2113 list of novels which will survive because they must survive I think I must have lost the ability to enjoy surrealist parables.
