More About This Textbook


Four characters absorbed in the apocalyptic modernity of a great city will bear witness to the crossing of their own destinies. A widowed taxi driver unable overcome the death of his wife, a jaded doctor, an African prostitute clinging to life, and an elderly scientist, star in an urban novel set on a background rife with serial killers, sadomasochistic housewives, and small wonders. A story of hope that will keep you enthralled from the very first page.
