Description

The Hood is the second book in Lavie Tidhar's ambitious Anti-Matter of Britain Quartet – a viscerally entertaining, ominously subversive and poetically profane remixing of the myths and legends that shaped our nation.

The Hood is Lavie Tidhar's narcotic remix of an ancient English myth, a tale knotted from legends lost to time, shredded and restitched for each passing century. A tale for today.

Subversive and profane ? I would rather say that the author uses his talent (and he really does have talent) to release an imagination I would dearly love to possess, I can see some purists being upset by this book, personally I loved it, more please
