Grief stricken, a sailor blames a sentient sea for the death of his wife... An orphan girl searches Europe for the secret of Alchemyâ€¦Illicit lovers try to alter timeâ€¦And, in a strange land, a bizarre ritual culminates in the Kissâ€¦Side-slipping genre as easily as it bends the rules of common reality, these seventeen stories interweave threads of grief and loneliness, yearnings for ages and lives lost and yet to be found, and the transformative power of love and its capacity for destruction.
Lyrical, surreal, mythical or everyday, High City Walk spans past, present and futures as possible as they are cataclysmic, yet always it takes you to the heart of it charactersâ€™ dreams and nightmares and finds that, often, there is hope in the worst of situations.
