The Dissolution of Nicholas Dee: His Researches
Michael Upchurch called The Dissolution of Nicholas Dee "a work of great charm, playful paranoia, and exquisite obsession". It is now available from Grove Press in its definitive, revised edition with an introduction by Michael Cunningham. Adrift in a glittering city of high culture and constant crime, an earnest young historian named Nicholas Dee finds his life being taken over by a mysterious dwarf and the curiously gifted illiterate boy she is charged with teaching.
