The Gone-Away World, Paperback / softback Book

The Gone-Away World Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The Jorgmund Pipe is the backbone of the world, and it's on fire.

Gonzo Lubitsch, professional hero and troubleshooter, is hired to put it out - but there's more to the fire, and the Pipe itself, than meets the eye.

The job will take Gonzo and his best friend, our narrator, back to their own beginnings and into the dark heart of the Jorgmund Company itself.

Equal parts raucous adventure, comic odyssey and Romantic Epic, The Gone-Away World is a story of - among other things - love and loss; of ninjas, pirates, politics; of curious heroism in strange and dangerous places; and of a friendship stretched beyond its limits.

But it also the story of a world, not unlike our own, in desperate need of heroes - however unlikely they may seem.
