"The Nova In The Attic" is a queer ghost story, one hundred years in the telling, that describes the enduring remnants of love after death. Set at first in a fin de siècle whorehouse and later in an elegantly appointed pharmacy, "Nova" depicts the intertwined lives of an immigrant abortionist, a wise procuress, a drug-addled historian, a glamorous "Fixer", an incandescently brilliant Vaudevillian, and a crass young artist. Traveling through three generations and dozens of vivid characters, the novel reveals within its magic knots a tale of romance, horror, talent, and the unpredictable movements of fortune.
