Last Song and Dance (Paperback)
Cy Sullivan, failed alcoholic author, has returned to his hometown from years of exile, scandal and disgrace, not in triumph but simply to die. He has but a week to compose his great American novella, Curse of the Blue Nun, which he cynically structures in relation to the seven days of creation in the Book of Genesis. A surrealist bible of sorts--but unlike the original, this one does not purport to be true.
Featuring illustrations by Pitroick Hanson and Lawrence McWilliams inspired, in part, by the work of Gustave Dore, LAST SONG AND DANCE is a darkly comic satire of all that is held dear.
