ABOUT THE BOOK

A comedian, a nun, a reality TV star and countless others meet in a Garden. This is not the start of a joke, but the beginnings of a parable. These denizens may be running out of time, even as it seems there is all the time in their Kafkaesque world.

Reader Reviews:
“With deceptive simplicity, the mutable voices combine in a tale both irresistible and haunting. Reading this story feels like witnessing a communion, or perhaps vivisection, of familiar states of being. Evocative and unforgettable.”
—Shubigi Rao, author of Pulp

“Wong pulls the rug from under us but leaves us still standing, albeit transported via his magic carpet ride to a new vantage point and offered a different perspective.”
–KK Seet, author of Death Rites
