A howl into the void, a ghost story, and a bit of a metaphysical hellride.
A misanthropic ghostwriter roams an island off the Kenyan coast. An Arizona teenager awaits the next stage in a secretive covenant. A renowned poet retraces her past amid a baffling netherworld. An international arms dealer's son drifts through time, atoning for the death of the man he loved.
For readers who take their contemporary fiction with a tinge of the otherworldly, Bleeding Light is about mystical experiences, the symbolic fabric connecting us all, and desperate people seeking affirmation--through religious, cosmic, chemical and other means--of a world beyond their own. It's a grimly funny and often trippy take on transcendence in a hypercommodified age.
A darkly gleaming marvel. Searing, creepy and mystical--as if Don DeLillo had set out to steal Paulo Coelho's flock.--Sean Michaels, Scotiabank Giller Prize winner and author of The Wagers
