A very interesting review of The Scent of Cinnamon, by literary blogger and novelist, the Gay Recluse (aka Matthew Gallaway), compares me with Keith Banner, a favourite of mine as regular readers of this blog will know, but someone whose work has always seemed to me to be working in a very different area from mine. What we have in common, for Matthew, is this:

Like Banner, Lambert likes to narrate from a dizzying array of perspectives — i.e., male/female, gay/straight (though he carefully avoids such terminology, thankfully) — and also like Banner, Lambert’s characters are not ones you’d like to consider friends…

The review goes on to say that:

we cannot read any of these stories without a sinking feeling that something bad is about to happen, leaving us with the question of whether the damage will be psychological, physical or some combination. 

Sounds good…

    As I said on the Gay Recluse’s blog, this sounds so me. It’s going on my Wish List now, even in spite of the hardback status. Mind you, it gives me something to say to Mother when she asks what I’ve spent the Christmas money on – though it’ll be a photo finish as to which of us gets to read it first …==:OAnne B

  2. That’s great, Anne. I hope that you – and your mother – enjoy it!
