Originally written in 1968, this classic of fantasy establishes and describes the world of Titus Groan, the 77th heir of his dynasty. Its inhabitants live, the reasons for which are mired in ritual, forgotten in the dust of time in Gormenghast Castle and the surrounding land. The themes and plots unfold slowly, bringing this strange world into focus. With amazing flexibility, Edmund Dehn twists his tongue around created words and unusual characters, each with their own speech mannerisms. As the listener struggles to understand the world of Gormenghast, Dehn breathes life into each curious inhabitant. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
