Uroboros Blues: A Literary Indisposition

“Boo!” said the author. “Boo! Feed me! Play with me! Look at me!”

A larval philosopher arises from the infertile sands of the desert of possibilities. The philosopher hears ten thousand voices but has no one to play with.

Uroboros Blues is a story about play and literature. Or (like last year’s companion novel, Kandida) perhaps instead an anti-story, about a narrator in the process of waking up from his own fantastic tale.

The book’s underlying and more universal theme is how we as humans invent ourselves though language.

Fable and satire in beautiful harmony.
