    I have just finished reading 'The Portrait of Mrs. Charbuque', a superb read. I found it intriguing, compelling and very well written. It kept me guessing till the end.
    I have rushed straight out and bought 'The Physiognomy', which if I enjoy half as much, I will be well satisfied.

    I really like Ford. The Physiognamy uses familiar elements to really do something new. I also like the short stories in The Fantasy Writer's Assistant. Good stuff.

    Very different, but just as original and very good.

    Just read your review and totally agree. Is The Physiognomy as good a read, then?

    I agree. If you check out Guardian.co.uk/books you'll find that I reviewed it a while back. I met Ford last month. Great guy, too.
    The review's also printed, in a slightly different form, in the forthcoming Wizardry and Wild Romance, in an appendix in which I recommend some contemporary writers, including VanderMeer and Bishop.

    The Portrait of Mrs. Charbuque

    Has anyone read this rather fine book? I finished it earlier and it has to be one of the most refreshings reads I've had for a while. Jeffery Ford is certainly an author to keep an eye on! :)
