No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality,
The ancient art of alchemy has fascinated writers for centuries, novelist Connell being no exception. Perhaps best known for the television and recent movie adaptations of his works Son of the Morning Star , Mr. Bridge , and Mrs. Bridge , Connell here delves into more obscure matters.
Consisting of a series of journals told from the viewpoints of seven alchemists, this work explores alchemy and its relationship to life.
Although written in an antique style, the journal entries nonetheless offer contemporary wisdom, especially on the subject of healing. However, despite its creativity, the book uses technical and esoteric vocabulary that will present difficulty for all but the most determined reader. This is a book for those who enjoy the puzzling and who share Connell's enthusiasm for the subject.
