Rejection, betrayal and a girl's discovery of evil penetrate this strange, haunting novel by the author of Ice. Kavan discards such aids to realism as geography and mundane physical facts - even time seems to have halted in a menacing country of emotions where the very ground is uneasy with seismic threats. A Scarcity of Love tells the story of a young girl, rejected by her narcissistic and vengeful mother, whose life thereafter is a continuing series of betrayals that lead to the dead-end of madness and death. Like Sylvia Plath, Anna Kavan was capable of nearly perfect control over language as she describes, with impressive simplicity, the bizarre and hallucinatory landscape of derangement.
