“She looked bad: pale beneath the grime and dried-brown blood, and small. She was dressed in a variety of clothes thrown over each other: odd clothes, dirty velvets, muddy lace, rips and holes through which other layers and styles could be seen. She looked, Richard thought, as if she’d done a midnight raid on the History of Fashion section of the Victoria and Albert Museuum, and was still wearing everything she’d taken. Her short hair was filthy, but looked like it might have been a dark reddish colour under the dirt.” I haven’t been this smitten with a book since “The Great Gatsby” and never have I been left so in shambles because it was over. To cope, I had to play dress up as my favorite character, Door, who is me in full spirit. The cats wanted to play, too, since there was a rat involved, even though we were trying to have a serious conversation. My blouse and skirt are true Victorian, Asian jacket and boots are ‘40s, leather jacket and belt are hand-me-downs. If “Never-where” ever hits the stage in America, I’m all over it. I also need to hunt down the BBC radio version. If you’ve read it, please, let’s discuss it!
