Yesterday, I was listening to Clive Barker’s The Scarlet Gospels. I’ve really been enjoying it. It’s incredibly grizzly and completely over the top. (It’s about Pinhead, of Hellraiser fame; so, that’s to be expected.)
One of the characters was described as having a “Gioconda smile.”
I like Barker’s use of language as much as I enjoy the stories he tells.
