A homogeneous mixture of parable, fantasy, social critique, and fable, Junger¿s novella centers on two botanists living in an idyllic seaside community as a mysterious political group gains power. This was a tough read for me. It is ominous and haunting. The characters¿ struggle with how to deal with the rising fascist leaders is very tactile. ¿While evil flourished like mushroom spawn in rotten wood, we plunged deeper into the mystery of flowers, and their chalices seemed larger and more brilliant than before. But, above all, we continued our study of language, for in the word we recognized the gleaming magic blade before which tyrants pale. There is a trinity of word, liberty and spirit.¿
