A wonderful hybrid of post-modern genre-bending and conventional narrative—an exploration of a state of mind rather than a description of events. This work deals with subjects as varied as memory; rewriting notions of history; erotic latitude; the blurred border between sleep, dream and reality; isolation; loss; pleasure and change.
