Steve Erickson: Days Between Stations

| | Comments (0)

Lauren used to be able to call cats to her. Now she's married to Jason, a professional cyclist who cheats on her. Michel wakes up, having lost his memory. He has just few clues to help him to find himself. The three main characters meet and collide in a world that's slowly driven to ruins: Los Angels is being covered in sand, Paris gets dark and Venice is drying.

This book is also about the Paris of the 1920s and the most glorious movie project of the era. Everything fits together in the end, believe it or not. Steve Erickson knows how to write beautiful prose. Even if you don't quite get the story, you can enjoy the language. [ Days Between Stations at ]Days Between Stations at LibraryThing ]
