A hugely inventive, hugely readable novel about two young people with Multiple Personality Disorder, 'A gripping novel of suspense that could have come from the pen of Stephen King at his best.' Daily Telegraph 'Mouse is lying in a strange bed, in a strange house, with her hand pressed between the thighs of a man she has never seen before. She doesn't know what day it is, or what city; she has no idea how she got there... She doesn't scream. She wants to, but a lifetime of losing time - and covering up the fact - has left her skilled at controlling her reactions. She screams inside.' Penny Driver - 'Mouse' - suffers from Multiple Personality Disorder, blacking out whenever one of her other personalities takes control of her mind and body. So when Penny discovers that her new colleague Andrew Gage also suffers from MPD, she asks for his help. Through therapy, Andrew's personalities have long since learnt to co-exist in harmony in an imaginary house inside his head, but Andrew's 'house' is not quite so ordered as he would like to believe. In helping Penny, he discovers a locked door under the stairs, deep in his unconscious - a door that hides the dark secret as to why Andrew's childhood mind shattered in the first place...… (mer)

Geniale. Questa è la parola che più si adatta a questo romanzo.Geniale l'idea di base, geniale l'intreccio, geniale la struttura narrativa.
Un romanzo di crescita ma anche un Giallo che deve essere risolto su due piani della realtà, fuori e dentro la testa del protagonista affetto dalla sindrome delle personalità multiple.Scordatevi Patrick McGrath però, e fatevi avvolgere da una trama fantasiosa e affascinante.

"A Romance of Souls" -- an engaging and imaginative story about a young man with "multiple personality disorder". He's set his personalities in order in a house that lives in his head. Flashbacks of abuse are depressing but somehow the narrative remains hopeful and sweet. Now the book is living in my head... (September 13, 2004) ( )

Beautiful and extremely helpful as guidance. Our system was just developing when we read the first pages of this. It took more than a year to get through it, but that's because this book is much more profound in handling the topic than most other media is...a lot of things are VERY close to things that happened to us.

The writing is amazing, too. I really liked all of the characters :) ( )

"I suppose I should tell you about the house.... The house, along with the lake, the forest, and Coventry, are all in Andy Gage's head, or what would have been Andy Gage's head if he had lived. Andy Gage was born in 1965 and murdered not long after by his stepfather ... It was no ordinary murder.. though the torture and abuse that killed him were real, Andy Gage's death wasn't. Only his soul actually died, and when it died, it broke in pieces. Then the pieces became souls in their own right, coinheritors of Andy Gage's life. . . . "
