VIOLIN, Rice, Anne
41 Rice, Anne VIOLIN
Ballantine Books 1999 0345425308 / 9780345425300 Paperback Fine 
If neatness counts for you, don't count on Anne Rice's musical-ghost novel Violin. It is an eruption of the author's personal demons, as messy as the monster bursting from that poor fellow's chest in the movie Alien. Like Ric e, the heroine Triana lives in New Orleans, mourns a dead young daughter an d a drunken mother, and is subject to uncanny visions. A violin-virtuoso gh ost named Stefan time-trips and globetrots with Triana, taunting her for he r inability to play his Stradivarius--which echoes composer Salieri's jealo usy in Amadeus and possibly Rice's jealousy of her successful poet husband Stan Rice in the years before her own florid, lurid writing made her famous . The storytelling here is too abstract, but the almost certainly autobiogr aphical emotions could not be more visceral. At one point, the narrator exc laims, "Shame, blame, maim, pain, vain!" But Rice's dip in the acid bath of memory was not in vain--she packs the pain of a lifetime into 289 pages.

CRAWLERS, SHIRLEY, JOHN
50 SHIRLEY, JOHN CRAWLERS
Del Rey 2003 0345446526 / 9780345446527 Paperback Near Fine 
Shirley's latest begins horrifyingly--a top-secret government lab is destro yed by nasty, experimental nanotechnology--and just gets creepier, though m ore subtly so for quite a while, with just flashes of strange things in the woods and odd behavior by the involved populace. The comfortable town of Q uiebra is in deadly danger, but the government, afraid of what will happen if the outside world finds out what has been let loose, is playing its card s close to its chest. For the Quiebrans, however, their predicament seems a t first only a streak of light in the night sky and a potentially profitabl e salvage operation for Adair Leverton's father. Shirley's characters are b elievably flawed and variable, while his nasty little nanocreatures are, we ll, nasty (also singleminded about spreading). Meanwhile, his prose is ofte n quite wonderful, even when he is describing something stomach-turningly i cky. This portrayal of the dangers of secret experimentation with the diabo lically dangerous is unnerving, not least because it is frighteningly convi ncing.

Warner Books 2003 0446610992 / 9780446610995 Paperback Fine 
They say his palazzo is to be a magnificent work of art-a dazzling edifice to rival the most opulent in the city. Its owner is a stranger to Florence, a wealthy foreigner who dresses in black silk and practices the age-old se crets of alchemy. But the man who calls himself Francesco Ragoczy da San Ge rmano conceals his own dark secrets that have exiled him to a life of blood -filled torment and eternal wandering. Yet in the sensation-craving Estasia , cousin to Botticelli, San Germano has found a woman whose unquenchable pa ssions could exceed his own. And in the fanatical monk Savonarola, he has f ound a powerful enemy: a dangerously obsessed ascetic who exerts a hypnotic power over the citizens of Florence. Savonarola is embarked on a reign of terror that will not end until every thing of beauty is destroyed and every heretic burned at the stake. As the city becomes a hotbed of religious fer vor and escalating violence, San Germano is faced with an impossible choice that could doom those he loves forever...and transform his own existence b eyond recognition. Peopled by such unforgettable real-life figures as the de Medicis and Sandro Botticelli, THE PALACE evokes Renaissance Italy in all its dangerous glory, as it weaves a darkly erotic spell of love, power, obsession and seduction that will keep you in thrall until the stunning conclusion.
