    One thought on “The Land Where Stories End”

    1. David Foster has a peculiar leprosy - critical and readerly invisibility. His work polarises, and sometimes bamboozles. He'll follow an idea obsessively, switch styles in pursuit, link books in different registers, and is cursed with a moving pen - too prolific and quixotic. He's the Miles Franklin winner you've never read - hence his inclusion in my "wanker" category - a writer you might reference if you want to establish your credentials. This book engages with the reader in a fairy-tale mode [...]

    2. Is this the worst book I've ever read?Yes.I don't know how it landed on my bookshelf but it it somehow. I have no idea what this book is trying to achieve, all I know is that it achieves nothing. It is a shamble of folk tales set in Ireland many years ago when Christianity was trying to settle while dealing with Ogres, Leprechauns and Fairies. It is told in a crude way where the main character ends up for some reason eating his own body fluid and excrement. Why? No idea.Stay clear !
