    Normalmente cuando alguien acude a Ritual lo hace tras enterarse de que es el libro que inspir The Wicker Man, la pel cula de culto dirigida por Robin Hardy que le quit las ganas a muchos de irse a vivir a un pueblito alejado de la ciudad En poco tiempo, la pel cula se volvi una de mis grandes obsesiones, y tan pronto me enter de la novela estuve de cacer a para intentar hallarlo.Lo m s interesante es que The Wicker

    This novel is filled with many priceless examples of overwritten prose, particularly regarding the character Anna s breasts, which behave in ways contrary to both nature and basic anatomy ex She stopped, pursing her nipples towards him It s interestin...

    David Pinner, Ritual Finders Keepers, 1967 I find it absolutely staggering that Ritual was out of print for as long as it was before being resurrected by Finders Keepers a music collective, not a press in 2011 After all, Ritual is the novel that Robin Hardy and Anthony Shaffer loosely adapted to create The Wicker Man, one of filmdom s enduring classics despite the slight loss of luster form the abortion foisted on the world as a reimagining in 2006 Accord

    The chances are, if you read this novel, you re doing so because of The Wicker Man The film started as an adaptation of this novel they bought the rights to the book but immediately went the way of so many adaptations, by throwing away everything but the basic idea Puritanical policeman investigates occult goings on in a remote community and one scene the through the wall seduction And, in this case, that was probably a good thing.Ritual follows Detective Inspector David Hanlin of Scotland Yard s Speci
