Something at the Window is Scratching - children's tales for disturbed children. A lovely introduction for what's to come (and no I wouldn't recommend this for a child!). Written by Roman Dirge, author of Lenore, The Cute Little Dead Girl, which has a cult following (hence why I brought it!). It doesn't seem to be brought new from any reputable outlet in England - however can be picked up for £5-£15 on Amazon depending if you want to buy it new or used!
It contains 20 rather short and strange poems, with every other page containing an image. The images are very much done in Roman's usual style, dark and slightly weird looking - it's wonderful! And I feel the poems fall into this category as well, dark and twisted. It's been put in the same category as Tim Burton's The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy: And Other Stories, but I feel it falls short of this, just a bad copy of the same style - or perhaps they are both as bad as each other Burton just has the fame to get his viewed by a wider audience?
Even as a fan of Roman Dirge's other work I still question myself as to why I brought this book, it was rather a disappointment, but perhaps the problem lies in me and not the book as I'm not really a fan of poetry anyway?
