Review Text

This rather overreachingly subtitled "novel of the subconscious" makes use of a number of derived things which have been around and about - Greek and Welsh myth, psychoanalysis and hypnosis, The Exorcist and The Three Faces of Eve. Bronwen, after her infant dies in his crib, moves to a large old house and wonders why someone appropriates her library card. Before very long she realizes that it is she herself who is possessed and there is some justification for Rhiannon, a long dead cousin (she herself had closed the lid of the freezer where she was hiding) to tenant her body, along with a new baby to come. But Dr. Ambrose, to whom she turns for help, thinks it's someone called Phoebe (and does he love her?) although by the close Rhiannon seems to be the winner. "Most people who read my story will think I'm truly mad, but perhaps somewhere there is someone - some one person - who too, has touched the elephant's tail." And you will find her, with or without salt? (Kirkus Reviews)show more
