Yet another fascinating surreal novel sidelined because of the author’s gender. This dream-like journey to the monastery of Rogomelec (which might or might not mean “he who stones the king”) is a short novel by the painter Leonor Fini. A fast and transfixing read full of gender ambiguity, an iridescent sorbet, a concert in an ossuary, and a lame monk who dresses the narrator in the most elaborate costume made from 100% freshly caught octopi. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood
