Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0963753630, Paperback)Fiction. In Java, a master of the shadow-puppet theater seeks to possess--by his art--a woman, who perishes as though by the contagion of his unnatural desire. SHADOWPLAY is a meditation on story-telling as an act of seizure, a parable of obsession and of the danger of confounding the real with its representations. "[A] journey as delicious as it is threatening"--R.M. Berry. "[Lock's] prose is melodial, and alert to every signal from the unseen"--Gary Lutz. "Wise up and get all you can of Lock"--Gordon Lish. "All hail Lock, whose narrative soul sings fairy tales..."--Kate Bernheimer. "Lock channels...our gorgeous desolation, our longing for connection, both earthly and divine"--Dawn Raffel.
