Format: Hardcover
This illustrated fantasy is on my top shelf. Each moody full-page illustration is accompanied by one or two paragraphs of an otherworldly story involving a detective, the strange man he is following, and a dark unhappy woman who is courted in the Orient by the soul of a grasshopper. ( ! ) This haunting mix of imagery gave me strange dreams the first time I read it

Format: Hardcover
I read this book once over 15 years ago, and I still remember it! It is a haunting and memorable modern mythical journey with an outrageous eroticism that has you baffled and entertained simultaneously. Imagine if you can ...a love-smitten cricket (or is it a grasshopper) who enjoys a shipboard romance in the folds of a woman's ****! The illustrations are fine pencil versions where film noir meets Alice in Wonderland and Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra. Yes, there is a golden sarcaphagus.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is amazing- a pulpy, mystical noir graphic novel from 1978, when graphic novels weren't a thing. Beneath the pulp adventure exterior lies some straight-up Kafka/Burroughs insanity as well. Everyone I show it to loves the layout and imagery, and is amazed by it. I've bought it three times because people keep borrowing it and never giving it back.
