The Adventures of the Ingenious Alfanhui
by Rafael Sanchez Ferlosio, the son of a Spanish father and an Italian mother, was born in Rome in 1927. He is one of Spain's most celebrated novelists. And writes like a heretical George McDonald.
Alfanhui, an apprentice to a taxidermist, carries out extraordinary experiments and travels around Castile in search of knowledge.
Excellent psychadelic glittering tapestry woven of colors and symbols and disguised as a children's book. Strangely compelling, dark and horribly beautiful--definitely not a children's book.
Short hypnotic chapters fall like dominos to reveal an infinitely petalled magickal fable.
BUY BORROW or BURN?
What books, zines or other pulp are you reading? What aren't you reading? What should everyone else read?
