'Licorice' is a novel, a mixed-up tale about a film, a windmill and city folk. The plot involves the making of a film by characters who are trying to gain permission to record the noises inside a reconstructed windmill to use as its soundtrack. When they don't succeed, the eponymous character Licorice makes an Aeolian harp out of bits she finds in a small electricals recycling bin. Licorice is the first title in the forthcoming Interstices series of books guest edited by Brighton based author Bridget Penney, whose previous publications include Honeymoon with Death and Other Stories (Polygon, 1991) and Index (Book Works, 2008).
