Exploring the limits of meaning and refashioning poetry as that which goes beyond the grammar of the commonplace, this brilliantly devised verse-novel is a passionate exploration of psychology and sexuality set among the tensions of contemporary European identity. This radically ambiguous poetic journey begins with the narrator's love affair in crisis and watches it unfold through loss, risk, existential challenge, and lovemaking that is at once sensual and imagined and questions the boundaries of true intimacy and identity.
