Summary (From the publisher):

Jostling through the light and shadow of Malacia's streets goes a crowd of people: dukes, merchants, actresses, priests, courtesans, spongers, soldiers and down-at-heel showmen. They are seen through the eyes of Perian de Chirolo, actor and adventurer, whose experiences take him into the heart of Malacia's darkest secrets. And behind the drama stands the enigma of Malacia itself. An age-old city-state where change is forbidden, lingering under the spell of its magicians...

Edition Details:

Language: English

Blurbs:
  • "A adult fairy tale; a long, detailed sensuous nightmare, richly embroidered with dreams of glory and haunted by shadowy fears... a framework reminiscent of the bawdy romances of the Byzantine Restoration. It is a clever book and a rich one... brimming with enjoyment." Irish Times
  • "It is running with juice and invention... what always wins one over is the feeling that here, inventing, scavenging, trying on ideas for size, or piling up visual inventories of an almost Johnsonian richness, is a writer with an utter compulsion to write." The Guardian
  • "Great fun in rich colours and texture, but there is a thought, erudition and a superb narrative prose to go with the action." Tribune
