This chapter discusses Sinclair's three novels, namely Dining on Stones, Landor's Tower and Radon Daughters. It notes that these three novels share structural similarities, motifs that have to do with roads and journeys are repeated, and the significance of narration and the narrator are centrally placed in the text. The discussion also determines that these three novels display an increasingly conscious appreciation of issues of gender and subjectivity.
