|Plot Summary of The Dumb House|
|"When his mother dies Luke is free to pursue his experiments into language. Free from any restraints such as human warmth, he performs his experiments with extreme cruelty but his own obsession is his undoing. Cold & cruel, there is no mystery, no whodunnit to unravel in this story; it is a psychological examination into psychosis left unchecked."
Claire Baldwin, Resident Scholar
