    1. You can enjoy the art work of Rima Staines (many do, including myself) without words attached to the melancholy, minor key figures she paints. You could enjoy the poetic and back-to-front prose of Sylvia Linsteadt without needing Ms. Staines to illustrate. But, if you were given the option of hearing the stories Ms. Linsteadt found inside Ms. Staines's paintings, wellen you'd have a bounty, wouldn't you?This story is like reading a map that's been folded left and right and then up and then left [...]


    2. Sylvia conjures a world of old tarmac, cracked and overgrown with weeds and saplings. A world where humans and wild beasts are indistinguishable and a wind blows through the land that is saturated in old stories. The book touches on a memory our blood and bones hold. The author writes feverishly, drawing a map to an in-between sort of yestermorrow that those of us disenchanted with modern society yearn to find again, for the first time. The artist, Rima's, paintings are likewise something ancien [...]


    3. This book is mad as a box of frogsd I love it! Trying to precis the plot is almost impossible, but it tells the tale of a post apocalyptic North America and the generations of interesting folks that live there. Each chapter focuses on one individual - Francis of Assisi's thumb, for example - and the chapters loosely connect to form a semi-coherent narrative. None of that matters really, because the writing is beautiful and the artwork, freaky as it is, echoes the unusual nature of the characters [...]


    4. What a gorgeous, unexpected book. Linsteadt wrote stories to accompany Rima Staines artwork, but there is definitely one spirit at work here creating something unique and memorable. I was mesmerized by the weaving of the stories and paintings. Linsteadt writes of the time after. After we've destroyed our world and its creatures through greed and tribalism, after the Fools have returned with Magic. It's extraordinary and beautiful. I had tears in my eyes more than once.


    5. Tatterdemalion is a real gem of a book and I struggle to find a simple, pithy description in 12 witty and original words. But reading this book has been a complete delight and both words and pictures have been a huge stimulus to my own writing.To begin with, the creative process that led to Tatterdemalion are topsy turvy. Rima Staines has been making her striking and remarkable paintings for 20 years and these served as inspiration for a series of stories that grew over time to link themselves t [...]


    6. Tatterdemalion is a post-apocalyptic fairytale. In a world where everything is poisoned, the wild things begin to emerge again and people must learn to live with nature again. The story is told as a series of narratives by various people woven into a kind of new mythology for this post-apocalyptic world. There were some great and innovatiave fairytale elments woven through the story. It's a strange book in that at times it reads like a fairytale and at times it really doesn't. There's some beaut [...]


    7. Bizarre and peculiar and like nothing I've read before. This conjures a world of the future where the old world is gone, and something new emerges, though as with all things, it comes slowly and takes a few hundred years to do so. Full of magic realism, strange and beautiful paintings, and mixed with the stories behind the paintings, which become the myths and legends of the new people, this collection of tales will stay with me a while I think.


    8. So imaginative, so wonderfully creative.A world whichever had been destroyed by humanity, which had almost destroyed itself now struggles to renew. Milk, breasts, placentae, seeds and soul look large in a world where new life is a mystery and life entwines with myth, superstition is truth and reality is elastic. Harking back to medieval texts the novel is Chaucer thrown into the future and left to flounder.


    9. I truly love everything Sylvia Linsteadt writes. This novel speaks so much to our times - to what we are coming up against, and how we might live in the face of it. Beautiful, poetic and captivating.


    10. I picked this up from Foyles, Oxford. I was intrigued by the cover and the art. The book never really connected with me. I didn't feel that there was a strong enough spine to tie the different stories together or that the style had a particular flair. Not a bad book but just average.



    11. Absolutely magical in a completely unique and ineffable way. It's the kind of book that should be read aloud, by candlelight, on long winter's nights.
