CANARY FEVER: REVIEWS John Clute


"They Could Not Stand the Barking"

....Several times over the years I’ve used the title of Robert Aickman’s superb autobiography – Attempted Rescue (1966) – to refer to adulthood as I think he intends to describe it: adulthood as a failure to rescue the Golden Age (which is to say our young selves) from self-murder. Attempted Rescue is what we do to our own lives with our own hands.
