Demons…. A murderous peeping Tom…. A three-hundred pound psychic beautician… A two-headed baby… And a visionary painter haunted by a strange beauty and a family curse dating back to Napoleonic France.
At once a mystery story, a love story, a kabbalistic conundrum, and a black comic farce in knockout prose
With comic characters like John Irving's, this offbeat coming-of-age tale will please anyone who would relish a prose style and a fictional world reminiscent of the early Philip Roth.
