La quatrième de couverture (1990)
``I envy anyone who has yet to enjoy the sexy, eerie
and addictive novels of Jonathan Carroll.
They are delicious treats - with devilish tricks inside them.''
- Washington Post Book World
Ricocheting between the haunted chic of Vienna and the
mystical crassness of Los Angeles, between the world of desire and the
landscape of dreams, Sleeping in Flame is a hypnotic
literary novel with irresistible elements of
fantasy and magic
It is the story of Walker Easterling, who saves a woman's life only
to place her in infinitely greater danger by falling in love with her.
It's the story of Maris York, and androgynous beauty who arouses
incinerating passions in the men around her. It is a novel
populated by a shaman with a fondness for sandwiches, an
autistic Adonis, and a tiny man as powerful and ravenously jalous
as the God of the Old Testament.
Praised by writers ranging from Stanislas Lem to Stephen King,
Jonathan Carroll has made Sleeping in flame a dizziying tour de force
of tenderness and terror, realistic suspens and mythic imagination.
