Riddley Walker

The magic of the puppet show, says Professor K.A. Laity, is its ability to transform the inanimate into animation, to turn movement into story, and to bring to life all manner of dreams and stories.

Chris Bell considers Russell Hoban's 1996 novel Fremder in relation to other works including Riddley Walker and Pilgermann.

Riddley Walker (Novel, 1980)

'Walker is my name and I am the same. Riddley Walker. Walking my riddels where ever theyve took me and walking them now on this paper the same.' Composed in an English which has never been spoken and laced with a storytelling tradition that predates the written word, Riddley Walker is desolate, dangerous and harrowing, and a modern masterpiece.

The Trouble Puppet theatre company of Austin, Texas, USA, have won an award for Best Sound Design for their production of Riddley Walker.
