Beryl and the Monsters

A story of pre-lapsarian innocence and corruption ... a gripping and powerful allegory of the modern world.

Voices emerge from the darkness. Albert and Beryl hear the howls of strange creatures in the forest. John tells them there are no monsters, but Beryl discovers a creature caught in the brambles. Albert doesn't like the look of it ...

Readers' comments

"The writing is beautiful and I found it very moving."

"One of the select books out of the hundreds of thousands published in 2014 (or any year) you should read, for the wonder of it all."

"Some of the most genuine and convincing dialogue I have encountered in my many years of reading."

"It uses the notion of fable and fairy tale to construct a curious and effective critique of modern materialistic life."

"Not since ‘Waiting for Godot’ have I read something that made me ponder its allegorical meaning so deeply."

"An ambitious, deceptively compelling story - engagingly strange, and strangely engaging."

"Striking and original."

"Beckettian characters and pragmatic dialogue make for an unusual, challenging but intriguing story."

"A superb tale."
