Overview

A compulsive and bizarre tale of fractured reality—of a world both seductive and menacing, where nothing is quite as it seems.

Mark did what people aren't supposed to do. He left his home, his job, his wife, his friends, his seven-month-old baby—everything. He took with him only two things: one was a flyer advertising a nightclub with an address written on the back in spidery pencil; the other was a small bag containing a large amount of cash. But it is not so easy to start again. Mark must find his way in a new town where no one will talk about their past, and where cell phones don't work. He soon discovers that this is not all that's strange about this nameless town. Friendships turn into a web of deceit and motives are always suspect. Mark's journey, both physical and metaphysical, takes him through layers of reality and toward refuge of an unexpected kind.
