W. J. TAYLOR
A grand verse novelReviewed in the United States on 8 December 2018
Okay, I am officially a fan. Porter specializes in verse novels, and they deftly move between humor and well, not tragedy, but certainly some dark vision. I am again amazed at Porter's ability to integrate a self standing poem into a string of the same to complete a novel. Of the three I have thus far, this one may be the most bleak. It also may be my favorite. But then, but I don't have to choose. . . The subject matter might have swayed me: a psychiatrist takes over a state mental institution with grand hopes that in five years he will have turned matters around, and if not cured and freed the patients, at least made their lives acceptable. His ex-wife, a Freudian, has her doubts about chemical rejuvenation and electro and chemical shock treatment, however. Porter realizes the males in this exquisitely.
