The Vorrh by Brian Catling download in ePub, pdf, iPad
It's a testament to Catling's skill as a sculptor of words that such otherworldly ideas and images not only connect, but resonate to the bone. The real-life surrealist writer Raymond Roussel, whose novel Impressions of Africa briefly mentions a forest called the Vorrh. Outside of the Vorrh sits another fictional place, the city of Essenwald, which was relocated from Europe, brick by brick, as a symbol of colonial dominance. As Peter's journey becomes stranger, so does The Vorrh's voluminous cast.
The forest is regarded with reverence and fear by both locals and colonials. All the weapons have names and personalities. But I personally think Catling is operating on a completely different level here. One has his son taken from him and returned with his hands sewn on backwards.
It also evokes the reverent butchery in Tibetan sky burials. It is immeasurable and apparently has no centre. And if you can invent one life, you can invent two.
Visitors can find information on a variety of topics that supply an abundance of vetted resources. The Vorrh is a semi-tropical forest older than mankind.
Knowing that homeless veterans come from all backgrounds, we promote the empowerment and dignity of all individuals. Structurally, the novel is essentially a series of image-laden set pieces and disparate storylines.
