CARNIVAL by Julian Rathbone


Email this review


Julian Rathbone writes about violence which is subsidiary to character as in King Fisher Lives, or to place--once again the Spain of Bloody Marvellous where not only new forces in the shape of a consortium of landowners but also the specifics of the corrida lend a real knout. A small team of mixed freelancers, making a documentary film, are on hand when an old Socialist is killed; an American proves to be a very ugly one indeed; and narrator-scriptwriter Colin Shed learns that the feudal owner's wife Purita belies her name in instincts and connections. The real hombre duro McCoy, always authoritative and literate.
