City of elegance and squalor. Of religious fervor and wanton lusts. And everywhere, on the walls of courtyards and churches, an incandescent fungus of mysterious and ominous origin. In Ambergris, a would-be suitor discovers that a sunlit street can become a killing ground in the blink of an eye. An artist receives an invitation to a beheadingâand finds himself enchanted. And a patient in a mental institution is convinced heâs made up a city called Ambergris, imagined its every last detail, and that heâs really from a place called Chicago.â¦
By turns sensuous and terrifying, filled with exotica and eroticism, this interwoven collection of stories, histories, and âeyewitnessâ reports invokes a universe within a puzzlebox where you can loseâand findâyourself again.
About: Set in the strange and ancient metropolis of Ambergris, a series of complex and interconnected stories and fantastical visions capture the bizarre lives and fates of the city's unusual inhabitants.
