To Find and Wake the Dreamer

Author: Hugh Cook Format: Paperback Release Date: 19/12/2005

A fast-moving fantasy novel, a no-holds-barred novel written on an adult level, about the war on terror. In the city state of Oolong Morblock, where a certain proportion of the people have a natural ability to cause themselves to explode, in effect making them potential suicide bombers, Ibrahim Chess tries to find the middle road: to steer a course of moderation and sanity in a world which is going mad, and where the civil peace is threatened by the increasingly intolerant fanaticism of the conflict between the minority group to which Ibrahim belongs, the astrals, and the city state's dominant group, the norms. Note: this book contains some disturbing scenes. If you do not find something in this book to disturb you then you are a seriously disturbed person. Are you a person of exquisite good taste? Then, sorry, but you are disqualified as a reader. This book pretty much takes the attitude that boundaries (especially boundaries of taste) are there to be breached. You have been warned!
