Dick Craw is one of those authors who can really bring a body part to life. Give it a life of its own and set it free. This book is just one example of the descriptive power of Craw’s work. It defies logic how logical these hands can be and how exacting and how cruel even. They are just hands right? His hands? Perhaps not and you should think again before believing such simple-minded so-called common knowledge. Damn those hands, for they’ll take you places you wish you could return and, places you would wish never to go back to.
