From the Publisher:
MacDonald Harris's novel is set in the 1920's against a backdrop of airships, mysticism, erotic love and a Europe that is picking itself up after WW1.
The narrative is so richly imagined that the reader cannot help but be propelled along with the extraordinary characters who make up the crew and passengers aboard the League of Nations airship.
Critical Acclaim for The Carp Castle:
- "It's a delight. It could be by no-one else--the combination of effortless technical detail and delicate emotional perception is utterly MacDonald Harris, and so is his sense, marvellously deployed here, of the simultaneous tenderness and absurdity of love. His sympathy for such a range of characters in their crazinesses, their various kinds of loneliness, their sheer comedy is wonderful. I think it's one of his very best; what a pity he didn't live to see it published".
