Mouth Sewn Shut

By

Greg Slap

A brilliant psychological account of a young artist’s shift from lucidity to a life riddled with unpredictable and horrific hallucinations. But his are no ordinary hallucinations, his delusions look and feel real, making it difficult to tell actual life from fiction.

When the visions reveal his friend Trey taking part in the bizarre ritualistic torture of mouth sewing, he is driven to learn more about Trey and the young woman who was his victim.

The more he unveils about Trey and the missing young woman- whose paintings may have inspired the torture- the more he realizes his visions are offering him clues, clues that will lead him toward an unlikely path.

His path includes bizarre visits with Trey’s drug-addicted mother, the elderly exhibitionist-millionaire she cares for at a famed Pasadena mansion and surreal romps through Melrose Avenue in West Los Angeles.

Slowly and against his will, he pieces together Trey’s disturbing and long-guarded family secret.

A rare glimpse into the horrific, yet slow onset of psychosis and homelessness, the frivolous nature of the art world and of tightly held family secrets, all through one man’s eyes. A world few us will encounter or forget.

This book is a real page turner. I was not sure how it would end but the ending turned out to be great and unexpected. A must read.

I skim a lot of indies in search of any gems lurking within the inky nebulous and was pleasantly surprised in discovering Slap’s chilling tale. The story revolves around a young man who begins to have visions where he is seemingly transported into the past. Of course, while there, he witnesses his best friend murdering a girl and the mystery begins. Slap does a terrific job unraveling the puzzle, avoiding many cliché plotlines, while whirling into unknown directions. Quite enjoyable, I look forward to reading more of Slap’s work in the future.
