A Tale of Two Deserts: Enigmatic Christmas Fables for the Modern Age
A Tale of Two Deserts is, as its subtitle suggests, a highly enigmatic work which is allegorical in nature. Its key theme is that of the battle between the soul and the mind, but told in a setting of two Christmas stories unlike any others in this genre of fiction. It is in fact two stories, which are at the same time one story. In many respects it is a work of art – an innovation in storytelling.
