Hill, Carol

(1942-    ) US author whose first novel, Jeremiah 8:20 (1970), is a raucous Fabulation about the Apocalypse, whose protagonist becomes (or does not become) Master of the Universe. Her second, Let's Fall in Love (1975), ornately spoofs sex, pornography and politics in a vaguely fantastic 1970s milieu. The Eleven Million Mile High Dancer (1985; vt Amanda and the Eleven Million Mile High Dancer 1988), equally flamboyant in diction, carries its female astronaut protagonist and her Cat Schrodinger towards Mars and into metaphysical (and Theory-of-Indeterminacy-and-Zen-evoking) contact with the eponymous Alien who somehow manifests the nature of the Universe. Henry James' Midnight Song (1993) flirts Equipoisally with Alternate History readings of the American expatriate literary world circa 1900. [JC]
