Freighted with allusions to high art and low culture, alternately jokey and portentous, it proceeds in associative fashion, each pas sage spewing another half-finished staircase that might lead into thin air. At times one has the impression Hoban writes merely for himself, but watching his ludic mind is pleasure enough for the most exacting reader.
The novel is a dreamscape in which gnomic utterances, mis-said and misheard words and frightful journeys become commonplace. Even the streets, buildings, bus routes and pubs of London acquire the air of the capriccio , the half-real and half-imaginary conjoined in a seductive tangle. Diggs's feverish wanderings call to mind another dreamy writer, de Quincey, who searched "the mighty labyrinths of London" all his life for a prostitute who had fetched him food and drink. Diggs, a painter entrapped by aesthetic sensibility, is also searching for a woman, "the image of a beauty who beckoned but was unattainable".
In Hoban's oneiric fable, Diggs's task is to discover whether he wants a woman rather than an image. If so, who will it be? And will she want him back? The exigencies of the quest, fraught with self-delusion, the unpredictability of others and the ghosts of memory, provide the novel with enough narrative charge to direct the mazy meanderings of dream life. A reductive theory of dreams might have it that they all concern sex or death. Hoban expands this to encompass the intricacies of mental imagery and the complexity of desire, with its twin poles of attraction and repulsion.
Amaryllis Night and Day is definitively about sex and death, but it also affords the hope that we might be able to escape those imaginary prisons, to leap from the "hairy shadow" of one staircase onto the light-filled bottom step of another.
