The Seurat Construct, Book 1 of The Burdened Air
For Francis Bacon—Revenge is a kind of wild justice. For Sandu Barr, it was all which remained to him in the years since his wife’s enigmatic death.
Drawn across cities, countries, and continents by ludic memories and quixotic chimaeras, Sandu is fired by the pursuit of what happened, why, and—above all—for those responsible. Still, he’d no real expectation of success until that evening in the industrial basin.
The cryptic encounter—hard on the docks—with the figure scuttling down ruined and derelict streets offered the first genuine opportunity in years. From this broke a widening gyre of gesture, absurdity, battle ballet, metaphysical elusion, and political in-fighting. Detail nearly drowning sense and purpose.
Aided by dream; a jade-eyed, black grimalkin of mixed purpose; a hesitant, self-righteous cabal, and his own rage Alexandru (Sandu) Barr stalks a tableau of characters and elusive endgames which cross time, M-Theory, myth, folklore, eschatology, and the burdened air of revolutionary wrath and justice. Cosseting these is an exegetical, if suspicious, promise of redemption.
