Description

Sprung from vicious and dysfunctional generations, the narcissistic muse, Estefania Viennese, and the self-negating artist, Severin von Zweighaupt, succumb to the unwholesome love they harbour for each other.

During Estefania's pregnancy with triplets, her mental illness resurfaces. As she degenerates, the couple grapples with a trauma-stricken family of their own creation.

Gabriela, their middle child, suffers from grief and individuation within a family of controversial artists and performative megalomaniacs. She brings an antique object into their house that will irrevocably influence the course of events for years to come.

This literary novel of artistry and dysfunction is not for the faint of heart. It dives deep into a family of decadents distorted by sexuality, deprivation, sickness, memory, identity and death.
