4.0 out of 5 stars Existentialist Horror, July 25, 2001
This review is from: Two by Carrere: Class Trip/the Mustache (Paperback)
I found these two novellas to be disturbingly warped (but I liked that). Carrere imaginatively explores the dark side of the human mind, what our mind can do to us, in an interesting way. These stories are short, but they pack an emotional punch that you won't soon forget. Class Trip is about a young, hyperimaginative, lonely boy on a class skiing trip when something goes horribly wrong and the real world unfortunately catches up with the horrible world of his imagination. The Mustache is about a man who shaves off his mustache, only to have everyone he knows, including his wife, deny that it ever existed. Other bits of his world start vanishing without a trace and there is a clever ending. Both of these works are intriguing, eerie and fascinating. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a little sophisticated horror.
