The Hearing Trumpet book. Leonora Carrington, the distinguished British-born Surrealist. Leonora Carrington died only a month and a half ago at the age of 94, a surrealist and remarkable traveler across the 20th century. Though I only heard about her through a post on the Writers No One Reads tumblr, it seems that she was far from unknown. Byatt describes Carmella's repeated mentions of firearms as masculine, but I thought them more likely to relate to the prevalence of revolutions, coups and armed rebels in the region.

A long overdue printing of the story of 92 year old Marian Leatherby, who, upon being given a gift of a hearing trumpet, discovers her family's intentions of committing her to an institution. This is no ordinary institution however, the buildings are shaped like birthday cakes and the gateway to the underworld is open.

Carrington Leonora The Hearing Trumpet 1996.

Leonora Carrington (1917–2011), the distinguished British-born Surrealist painter who made her home in Mexico City, was also a writer of extraordinary imagination and charm, and The Hearing Trumpet is perhaps her best loved book. It tells the story of 92-year-old Marian Leatherby, who is given the gift of a hearing trumpet only to discover that her family has been plotting to have her committed to an institution. But this is an institution where the buildings are shaped like birthday cakes and igloos, where the Winking Abbess and the Queen Bee reign, and where the gateway to the underworld is wide open. It is also the scene of a mysterious murder. Occult twin to Alice in Wonderland, The Hearing Trumpet is a classic of fantastic literature that has been translated and celebrated throughout the world.

Astonishingly clever, funny, witty, mildly irreverant, and happily, unexpectedly NOT Dark.
Even though "Surrealists" are now somewhat out of fashion, Leonora Carrington will likely bring you joy, laughter, a few tears, and giggles. This is a gorgeous piece for grown-ups.

This book is like Roald Dahl for adults. A surrealist feminist novel. I enjoyed it. The author ran in the same circle as Picasso. I found it interesting as a study in surrealist thought of the time. Allusions to mythology and fairytale are interesting. All in all it is a bit of a bizarre little book. You might like it if you have a curious mind. Read the introduction. It will help.

An absolutely unique tale and style of writing. I have never read anything like it. For those who begin the book, stick with it until it starts to make real sense. It pulls you in gently, and for some, might seem confusing, at first. I am planning to read it again, as I'm sure I missed some things the first time.

i have loved leonora carrington's paintings for a long time, and only recently got a chance to read this book. i finished it quickly.
what struck me was how fast it moves, which for someone taking it at face value might ruin the whole thing - - but for one looking at the story running through it that ISN'T in the book, it becomes haunting, dark, disturbing and profoundly sorrowful even as the story itself soars to the heights of fantasy. i can't say too much more without ruining the book, but if you understand what i believe she's trying to say happened, then you will agree with me about the haunting-dark-disturbing thing.
on the surface it still has a lot to please - - witchcraft, goddesses, the kabbalah, mysteries both domestic and occult, black comedy and sweeping adventure. the main character is as loveable and charming as she is eccentric, and she's a whole lot of eccentric. i think this may be an overlooked classic.
and the line drawings by carrington's son (i think?) are killer! i'm getting a tattoo of one of the frontispiece, marian with her trumpet.

I love the style of Leonora Carrington's writing - a beautiful, fantastically funny yet interesting and encouraging story.... about getting old and still maintaining dignity... Can only recommend it

Funny, witty, and a great visionary story. Leonora Carrington was a wonderful writer.

It is an odd novel about very old woman who is sent off to a retirement home. It is a whimsical romp, a work of magical realism. And no wonder. Leonora Carrington was a surrealist painter, born in England who lived in Mexico most of her life. The book is true to the legacy of Surrealism, her revolutionary world view and her interest in alchemy and art. Thoroughly enjoyable, absurd and entertaining.

This simple little novel was quite uncomplicated, endearing and magical. I would recommend for children with vivid imaginations and those looking for a little post-surrealist treat.
