The Clock King and the Queen of the Hourglass

Dreams of the Compass Rose goes with chocolate and Stravinsky and Albinoni, and with blushing peaches with their skins on, eaten in the bath, or if the wrong season where you live, hot chestnuts; and when night falls, with looking up at the stars and seeing their different colours.
And The Clock King and the Queen of the Hourglass was so polite to be the right size for international postage. Much more polite than the book, which moved me all over my universe and way beyond that, with no polite warning, in all sorts of ways. I feel stretched!
