Gabriel Josipovici has published a series of fictions centering around artists, writers, painters, musicians. This is perhaps his most opaque yet compelling work in this group of novels.

I am guessing it is not an accident that this book's title echoes [a:edgar allan poe|5756|Edgar Allan Poe|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1183237044p2/5756.jpg]'s [b:goldbug|1520379|Goldbug & Co.

Thought-provoking mix of philosophy and fiction, a blur of past and present, fiction and reality. It curiously stimulates, but doesn't truly engage the reader. The stories meant to enduce sleep in one of the characters eventually do that with the reader. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060897236, Paperback)

At the turn of the eighteenth century, a writer—a Jew—enters an English country manor, where he has been invited to read through the night to his host until the gentleman falls asleep. What unfolds then are seemingly unconnected stories covering a vast array of topics—from incest to madness to a poetic competition in the court of George III. And what emerges by the end is a breathtaking tapestry in which past and present, imagination and truth, are intricately woven together into one remarkable whole.
