Temples of Delight

Title: Temples of Delight
By: Barbara Trapido

Barbara Trapido is quicksilver. Her prose beguiles. Her plots twine. Her characters dart. Sadly, SCPL owns only three of her seven books, five of which are linked, although not linearly. Start with the Mozartean Temples of Delight, then read her first two books, Brother of the More Famous Jack and Noah's Ark, in order. Ensorceled, beg SCPL to find copies of Juggling and Traveling Hornplayer, which share characters with the first three books. Add the fictionalized memoir Frankie and Stankie and her most recent book, Sex and Stravinsky (yes, you read the title right), for utter delight.
