Ricocheting between the haunted chic of Vienna and the mystical crassness of Los Angeles, between the world of desire and the landscape of dreams, Sleeping in Flame
is a hypnotic literary novel with irresistible elements of fantasy and magic.
It is the story of Walker Easterling, who saves a woman's life only to place her in infinitely greater danger by falling in love with her. It's the story of Maris York, an androgynous beauty who arouses incinerating passions in the men around her. It is a novel populated by a shaman with a fondness for sandwiches, an autistic Adonis, and a tiny man as powerful and ravenously jealous as the God of the Old Testament.
