Two connected novels (Bagdad Butterfly of Panama, and Waterstories) in one book. Travel through time, life and death, air and water, as you move across a mythical America in this pair of mysterious, poetic adventures. In 1989, Allen Frost wrote these legends in NYC, inspired by the soul of that big city, and the experience of a gothic winter visit to Cape Cod.
