There is very little magical writing: pretty much a reportorial this-happens-then-that-happens, very few memorable passages amidst the arid desert of his prose.

Back to Blood is as fraudulent as the forged paintings at the centre of its plot, falling victim to the social diseases it pretends to diagnose: gigantism, self-indulgence, superficiality masking as profundity, a hyperactive, hyperbolic acquisitiveness and an endless taste for the crudely obvious.

Nobody else writes like this and it is still an astonishingly extravagant performance in its own way. He’s tireless, it seems. The reader tires, though.
