Staff Reviews

A bizarre and sublime book of maybe-related tales, with a cast of artists, astronauts and, particularly, woodworms.  this book will seduce and puzzle.

— From Wes


This is, in short, a complete, unsettling, and frequently exhilarating vision of the world, starting with the voyage of Noah's ark and ending with a sneak preview of heaven!
