BOOK REVIEW

THE DISSOLUTION OF NICHOLAS DEE by Matthew Stadler
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 2, 1993

"Homoeroticism provides the only heat in Stadler's second novel—a curious but fitful tale in which pages from the score of Purcell's The Tempest appear: a sop to intertextuality that seems mostly pretentious."
As lyrical at times as its predecessor Landscape: Memory (1990), Stadler's latest is also a more ambitious undertaking—but this slurry of historical sleuthing, musical fantasy, and personal discovery ultimately overreaches itself. Read full book review >
