Review

Rating: 7

A strange and phantasmagorical book involving a man named Leo who encounters a mysterious woman named Veronica. The action jumps around New York with locations that are also reflective of a mental landscape and occasionally jumping to other places around the world and to other times. There’s a healthy dose of mysticism with references to the Elizabethan School of Night and the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Strongly reminiscent of Italo Calvino’s urban dreamscapes with a dash of noir including a crooked ex-policeman and meetings at a Jazz club.
