Mainstream novel with fantastic elements. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.

''a wry and comic novel that interweaves its own fiction with an inner fiction about the discovery of a Byzantine painting of the Mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary suckling the infant Jesus and a fake ikon that becomes an instrument of Nemesis. Told in the first person, from the perspective of a randy but unfortunate author who becomes a character in his own novel, this clever novel, which smacks of both Pirandello and post-modernism, walks a tightrope between hilarity and tragedy as it delivers on familiar Aldiss themes, as muff-diving and nose-diving to disaster alternate to powerful effect. The Cretan Teat is without doubt Brian Aldiss' most ribald novel since The Hand-Reared Boy''.
