Rikki Ducornet is one of my all-time favorite authors. Her work is prose-y and delicious. No matter what's happening in her stories I always know where I am and I always want to be there to meet these characters. Her writing makes me feel like I'm a fly on the wall. The characters in this book are among my favorites of all time across genres and whatever. Her writing is sensual and living and captivating. She has a very unique voice and I highly recommend her work to any fan of absurdity, the occult, dark themes, strong females, unique narratives....she's a strong storyteller and have been deeply in love with this book for decades

What a fantastic read. Do yourself a favor and get this book right now. Imaginative, original, engrossing. I read it in an evening. The old trite "I couldn't put it down" is completely applicable here.

"The Fountains of Neptune" is a dream-like, dense anti-novel that uses dreams and myths to discuss the perception of history, memory, and loss. Like the novels of Jeanette Winterson, "Neptune" does not rely on standard plot structure. The basic story is two-fold: young Nicholas grows up in preWWI France, a precocious nine year old living a town of eccentric storytellers. A traumatic event causes him to go into a coma. He wakes up 50 years later, after both World Wars, having spent his life in dreams. The second part of the story concerns his relationship with his therapist, Dr. K, and her attempts to rebuild his memories. But it is Ducornet's unlimited imagination and gift for fabulation that is the true star here. Her images are sharp, eerie, humorous -- and always haunted. Ducornet leads us into the labyrinth of the subconsious -- complete with its demons, half-heard conversations, and golden memories -- but leaves no trail of twine or breadcrumbs to find our way out. Phantom ships, enchanted seascapes combined with idyllic countrysides and the philosophical world the Spa where Nicholas and Dr. K have their metaphysical relationship make this one labyrinth you won't want to leave -- Minotaurs or no
