The book is about Jack (not me at all!) who starts to sleepwalk and, coupled with a hedonistic lifestyle, begins to goes down a dark road which ends up in spiritual possession, exorcism and him doing a bad thing. It is a psychological horror, a black comedy and a sort of romance.
This is a story about the edge of consciousness. The space between wakefulness and sleep; intoxication and sobriety; the angels and the demons; dark and light.
This is a story about Jack and his journey to this place. It is a psychological horror. A love story. A black comedy. A drug binge.
This is a story that should never be told.
