A Man Built On Sand
This riveting novel, evolved from a Nordic moon myth, tells the journey of a passionate young artist who travels to the limits of sensuality and mysticism, where distinctions between reality and imagination become blurred, in search of meaning in his crumbling world. Surreal happenings intertwine with bizarre characters fragmenting Michael into a cast of personae who enact a story of madness. But how are crazy sounds and words organized in an echo from the edge Sensual and mystical dimensions co-exist, echoing the dolce stilnovo, the thirteenth century literary concept that celebrated woman's physical beauty as the vehicle for her lover's union with God. This psychological novel seduces the reader into Michael's complex world where shadows take form as reality, reaching a powerful, surprising ending.
