  • Ingalls, Rachel
    BINSTEAD'S SAFARI

    Edition: First printing

    London: Faber, 1983. Author's third novel. Tan boards. Fine in fine jacket. "Following a decade of silence, Ingalls began to produce works which boldly wed an absorption in the subtle nuances of quotidian experience with a strain of eerie, exalted fantasy. MRS CALIBAN (1982) and BINSTEAD'S SAFARI (1983) both evoke the conflicted romantic coupling of a bored, alienated housewife with a supernatural entity -- a froglike humanoid in the former book, a shapeshifter tribal shaman in the latter." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 499.
