Sphinx by David Lindsay cover based on 1923 John Long edition image
On the surface, Sphinx tells of the arrival into a polite and
fashionable 1920's rural community of one Nicholas Cabot, a
young man who has recently come into money.

The deeper themes of the book include levels of consciousness,
the nature of choosing, and the boundary between life and death -
explored chiefly through the device of Cabot's esoteric chemical
experiments.

Like all of Lindsay's books, Sphinx gives up its secrets a little at a
time, and rewards frequent re-reading.
