The Collector

Type: Electro-acoustic

Date: 1994

Dur: 2'15" / 3.1mb MP3
    The Collector is based on the 1963 novel by John Fowles, about the abduction of a young girl by a disturbed 'butterfly collector'. The book is in turn both terrifying and sympathetic and is, to my mind, one of the finest literary debuts of any author.

This version of the track features dialogue excerpts taken from Dennis Potter's 1984 film 'Dreamchild', which chronicled the life of Alice Liddell and her relationship with the writer of 'Alice in Wonderland', Charles Dodgson.
