The Cave, Paperback / softback Book

The Cave Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Cipriano Algor, an ageing potter, lives with his daughter and her husband in the shadow of the Centre, a nebulous, constantly expanding conglomerate that provides his livelihood - until it decrees that it is no longer interested in his humble wares.

Together with his daughter, they craft a new line of small ceramic figurines and, to their bafflement, the Centre orders vast quantities.

But once the figures are complete, the Centre recants: there is no market for them.

Resigned to idleness Cipriano moves into the soulless megaplex, until late one night he comes across a horrifying secret in the bowels of the artificial city.
