About this product
- DescriptionFeatures a young schizophrenic who transports himself, and the reader, through a wondrously transfigured city where the real and the fantastic blend together in a seamless enchantment. In this title, the continual stream and buzz of events is often comical, occasionally wrenching, and always unpredictable.
