Summary
"Between life and death, dreaming and waking, at the train stop beyond the end of the world is the city of Palimpsest. To get there is a miracle, a mystery, a gift, and a curse -- a voyage permitted only to those who've always believed there's another world than the one that meets the eye. Those fated to make the passage are marked forever by a map of that wondrous city tattooed on their flesh after a single orgasmic night." To this erotic and fantastic kingdom come Oleg, a New York locksmith; a beekeper, November; Ludovico, a binder of rare books; and a Japanese woman named Sei, each of whom has lost something important in their lives. -- Publisher info
Summary
The lives of four strangers--a locksmith, a bookbinder, a lost girl, and a beekeeper--linked by an enigmatic tattoo intertwine as they search for their shared destiny during nighttime visits to the fantastical and hallucinogenic city of Palimpsest, a world visited only in dreams
