Aerodynamics of Pork/Gale, Patrick/Paper/0586091467/S047-B2
Heady wish-fulfilment is in the air as two contrasting love stories entwine in the space of one simmering summer week. In London, a lesbian cop is surprised by subversive lust while investigating a series of violent attacks on newspaper astrologers. Meanwhile in Cornwall, the Peakes are conducting their annual music festival, the cue for their two "children" - Seth, a young violin prodigy, and Venetia, a highly-strung scholar - to embark upon a voyage of self-discovery. As Seth sets out in hot pursuit of unconventional romance on the cliff-tops, the virginal Venetia displays every symptom of an Immaculate Conception. To cap it all Father develops unmistakable signs of criminal insanity. Harmony is eventually achieved, but not without bloodshed. Deft in its observations and brilliantly wry in its characterisation, 'The Aerodynamics of Pork' is suffused with a double-edged wit that tickles with the first stroke and cuts deep on the second.
