Summary
In this lyrical and highly visual modern-day fable, a man travels to Antarctica where he finds Isabella, a dinosaur, below a sheet of ice
Review
In this novella, Fattaruso's fiction debut, we follow a deaf Arctic explorer named Iple past his violent death and into the afterlife, where he watches the humans back on Earth revive an ice-preserved brontosaurus. Fattaruso's quirky cast of characters includes two eerily prescient little girls, a flugelhorn-playing DNA scientist, and a tyrannical ex-president who builds a stadium to hide the construction of a giant underground dinosaur lab. Unfortunately, these impressively imagined personalities are stifled by Fattaruso's stiff, convoluted, and exhausting prose. At times, the repetitive narrative gives one the sense of listening to a story told by a rambling four-year-old, but its playful tone is too obviously crafted to hold any lasting charm. While this novella does contain a few thought-provoking philosophical tidbits and a handful of lucid and beautiful sentences, it is just not worth wading through the mass of overwritten lines to find them.—Julia LoFaso, Long Island City, NY --Julia LoFaso (Reviewed October 1, 2004) (Library Journal, vol 129, issue 16, p68)
