Description

In what strange edifice of the imagination do you find a condemned cell, a hotel room and a hospital room? What kind of hotel offers a zinc mine, a meat-packing plant, a weapons factory and a cemetery of famous artists among its attractions? Why do four people commit suicide in the same bathroom and why does a literature professor cut up several of the greatest works of literature into a confetti of letters?

In this wildly imaginative, wildly funny satire on Art and Death nothing is quite what it seems and the maze of symbols grows more complex with each encounter.

Review quote

Zivkovic continues his meditation on the nature and process of becoming an artist, but this time from a much darker and more satirical point of view. This is the most complex of all his story-suites, put together with the teasing intricacy of an Escher drawing.--Tamar Yellin, Infinity Plus ...the pinnacle of both storytelling and strangeness, features four people, each interrupted in turn by guests who tell art-themed stories with delightful digressions...--Publisher's Weekly
