Sean Dixon's first UK review

Kidnapped by the book club
By Lauren Paxman
London Lite
June 24, 2008

[4 (out of 5) stars]

This novel about an unusual book club was released just a little too late to make Richard and Judy's list of summer reads, but it's the novel that everyone will be talking about in a few weeks' time. The Lacuna Cabal is an idiosyncratic book club -- and not just because of its name. Its members meet in locations appropriate to the book being discussed (but rarely read), kidnap the authors they are fond of and re-enact their favourite passages. But the Cabal's days are numbered.

Wide slumber for lepidopterists reviewed by UK's Stride Magazine

By Sarah Law
Stride Magazine
August 2007

Wide Slumber for Lepidopterists is a gorgeous poetic conceit. It's beautifully produced, a kind of pocket-sized textual flicker book, with some lovely illustrations too. Its subject is sleep, its different stages and parasomnias, viscerally evoked using the language of lepidoptery in quite astonishing experimental configurations. It is textbook of 'Sleepidoptera', as Rawlings coins.
