«  when i picked up this book, all i knew about it was that it was apocalyptic. i certainly didn���t realise that the apocalyptic scenario in fact plays out a sinister psychological dreamscape, where the boundaries between interior and exterior, real and imagined, hallucination and daydream, sadistic wish-fulfillment and physical injury, are utterly erased. that was a shock. but whilst kavan���s ice turned out to be far more disconcerting than i���d anticipated, it certainly wasn���t disappointing. »
