Mysterious and spooky
It's altogether ooky
"Triforium" I say!
My favorite innovation? The secret lives of ghosts. Who knew. Overstuffed yet entertaining. Like when the circus train unloads. Liked it. Buy it, you will be amused, bewildered, and maybe a bit anxious when you've read it.
It's not history, not science, not philosophy, though it's thoroughly steeped in all these and more. It's a sardonic account of hapless 'everyman' Wallace Butterfield's adventures when he ("Son - Newly Graduated - Without a Clue - Architect - Maybe") is summoned by post to meet with the Chairman of the Westminster Abbey Foundation. In an obscure office tucked away in the Abbey triforium behind a jumble of "a few abandoned and battered gargoyles" and "stacks of wooden boxes labeled Royal Wedding, State Funeral and Coronation," he is tasked by a Reverend Podi-Peruda to design a magnificent new central tower to finish the Abbey "the way it was meant to be finished."
But, of course, Butterfield's quest is a bit more than a design project and Reverend Podi-Peruda is a bit more than the chairman of the Westminster Abbey Foundation. It's fun, fun, fun in the best tradition of satire, snark and completely entertaining preposterosity.
