'Flying to Nowhere' is set in an island community based around an abbey, an abbey in possession of a sacred well. The Abbot, at first eccentric, is revealed as effete and dangerous. His quest to find the location of the soul has led him into detached experimentation and a complete loss of love and empathy for living human beings. And horses. I found the fate of the horse extremely painful. 'Flying to Nowhere' isn't an easy read for vegetarians or anyone seeking emotional uplift.
I can't say I liked the ending. Actually I disliked it. A lot. But it was also brilliant. John Fuller is an amazing writer. This is essential reading for anyone interested in word magic.
After initially posting this review, I came to learn tht John Fuller is a highly esteemed professor, prolific and highly regarded poet and novelist. I can't wait to start with the Collected Poems, which I ordered yesterday!
To compare it with The Name of the Rose, as a reviewer has done in the New York Times, is extremely far-fetched.
I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, and would have given it no star, if that was possible.
