Angelica is a delightful puzzle of a book. Prismatic in nature, the narrative shifts subtly to examine what, at first glance, appears to be a haunting, but quickly reveals itself to be something more disturbing. Phillips explores genres, the social mores of Victorian London, the supernatural, and the nature of memory to produce a novel that, while set in the past, proves to be profoundly modern.
