The Tale of Raw Head and Bloody Bones - Jack Wolf

The Tale of Raw Head and Bloody Bones is a book that eludes categorization: there is a fantasy, there is horror, there is a coming-of-age, and there is a love story. It is also a tale narrated by that most unreliable of unreliable narrators – a madman; Tristan Hart is plagued by psychosis and violent outbursts. He is contradiction personified, a man of science obsessed with goblins, a man both rational and delusional. Wolf takes a risk by imitating the 18th century writing style, but his gamble pays off as the Tristan’s narration takes over and Wolf’s storytelling skill turns a literary gimmick into a natural and necessary ingredient of the book. It is a brave, not-for-the-squeamish debut novel. Be prepared to lose some sleep, have an interest in the history of medicine, and delight in trying to figure out what is real and what is simply a product of an unbalanced mind.
