Between reality and fantasy waking life and dreams the past and the future darkness and light love and lust The stories gathered here unfurl in settings as disparate as nineteenth century Vienna a contemporary Connecticut town the corridorsf a monstrous museum and Thomas Edison’s laboratory and they are inhabited by a wide ranging cast f characters including a knife thrower and teenage bo.
