||A book by Michael Faber
||An alien in the form of an attractive woman drives around Glasgow in a white van, picking up stray men and taking them to her lair with the expectation of sex. She is supported, or possibly controlled by another or others who ride motor cycles. As she empathises more with the humans her control over her situation is jeopardised.
||Many apparently ad lib conversations with men in Glasgow (I needed the subtitles), some very strange scenes involving both male and female nudity, at least one odd sexual encounter
||Most critics loved this, but I am with those who felt it was a good story spoilt by the obscure art house presentation. It is left to the viewers to make what they can from the scenes, and questions have been asked. Why are the aliens there? Why are their various powers so inconsistent? Why does she… oh no, that would be a spoiler!
