The complete set of five novellas from Nick Earls. All individual, all linked in subtle and intriguing ways....
Gotham tells of the encounter between music journalist Jeff Foster and 'boy pharaoh' Na$ti Boi. Venice is about love and the tensions that pull us apart. Vancouver is the story Paul would tell if he were living in plague times - a story that comforts, a story that wards off evil. Juneau captures an acutely observed moment in which we see the universe. NoHo is about living in the shadows of the famous. The introduction to the complete set is written and narrated by Chris Flynn and the afterword written and narrated by Nick Earls.
This is a wonderful linked series of novellas. I liked some of the stories more than the others, but they were all interesting, difference and yet made a cohesive whole.
The different narrators for each story were a really nice addition.
