Among These Savage Thoughts

by Astro Teller

Among These Savage Thoughts Synopsis

In Among These Savage Thoughts, Astro Teller brings the reader a fable of internal struggle and personal rediscovery, incandescently imagined and visualized. The story weaves Lane, a young man in his last year as an apprentice assassin, into the fabulously foreign ancient town of Karabas. This young antihero comes to grips with his unpardonable sins of leniency and watches internally as his personality and confidence come crashing down around him. Through the shifting textures of the language itself the reader experiences Lane's loss of self and his struggle to reinvent himself behind a mask of normalcy. It is the story of a metamorphosis told through the shifting chiaroscuro playing across the undulating surface of a chrysalis.
