Attica

Attica by Garry Kilworth (ATOM, 2006); audiobook read by Simon Vance (Blackstone, 2013) Alice in Wonderland meets Homer’s Odyssey. There’s a dark whimsy in Kilworth’s story of three children journeying through a boundless attic, yet it does not evoke wonder so much as despondency. The characters grow but afford too little payoff at journey’s end.
