I was very pleased this morning to wake up to a lovely review of The Descent of the Lyre on the excellent Vulpes Libris, one of my favourite book blogging sites. Here’s a short extract:
“It’s just a good novel, a very good read, and a highly memorable tale told simply. Buckingham also writes compellingly as a guitarist, the descriptions of the music also sounding like music, in how the words sit on the page and how the phrases are paced… I enjoyed this novel very much for its feeling of being a fable, a handed-down tale, constructed from bits and pieces of fact and fiction, blended back into myth.”
