His work has been termed 'avant-guard', but it is much more ambitious than that, as honest as it is unique.

Anna is a student with a taste for perverse sex involving an older man and a ventriloquist's dummy. She lives in Aberdeen and her sex life revolves around the stone circles in that region. The grandeur of the stones provides a backdrop against which she can act out her provocative psychodramas. com User, April 28, 2010. I realize that I am in limited company in loving this book. It is very strange and mixes (intentionally) poorly written pornography with rambling discussions of avant-garde literature, descriptions of the Scottish countryside, and ventriloquist's dummy who can think.
