Ghost at the Loom: A Novel

T. Zachary Cotler. MP Publishing, $14.95 paper (224p) ISBN 978-1-84982-245-9
Colter's lyrical novel is an evocative, complex, and hallucinatory eulogy for reality. Wandering poet Rider Sonnenreich embarks on a surreal quest across Europe—and into the human mind—struggling to explore borderlands between reality and dream, memory and fantasy, as he searches for his sister Leya. Elegant settings are revealed as spiritual vacuums, as Rider travels Europe in the footsteps of departed poets. As the nature of existence and perception is ruthlessly challenged, so to is logic and the reader's expectations. The result is both frustrating and heartbreaking—a haunting novel that plumbs the depths of the human psyche. Colter has written a philosophically rich antinarrative that refuses simplistic interpretation and casts doubt on much that we hold dear.
