The Harmony of the Stares – Charles Wilkinson (Egaeus Press)


2 in stock


Egaeus Press and the marvellously unique Charles Wilkinson join forces once more for The Harmony of the Stares: Ten diversely strange tales, steeped in menace, linked in the most unexpected ways by an auricular theme… These are tales in which music often plays a role: music as ritual, music as language, impossible music, lethal music. But here also are the silences, the stop-gaps between notes, the attempted retreats from the audible world.

The True Accompanist
Quiet Heaven
The Oboists
The Missing Part
