Set amongst the exotic and floating islands of South East Asia, somewhere between the Indian and Pacific Oceans~ Alvaro Fuentes, a distinguished research scientist with little memory of his past, due to circumstances beyond his control, is convalescing in the hope he might assist the authorities with their investigations into a series of catastrophic events that have jeopardised the future of the entire region and perhaps beyond. In coming to terms with his condition and the calamity for which he is seen to be largely responsible, Professor Fuentes is forced to reinvent himself and reconstruct his life as best he can. Without a memory of the past to assist him, the possibility of creating a future seems increasingly unlikely. The main stage for the developing and unfolding narrative is the quiet and rarefied splendour of The Lost Library of Miraculous Metaphors~ a strange and magnificent room imbued with magic.
Once again Clive WILKINS produces a work exploring the nature of consciousness, perception and memory. The novel sets out to be a series of visual and sensory delights from the moment the flickering curtain of the eye opens until it finally closes.
