Description

In achaotic city, the latest in a line of viruses advances as a man recounts the fated steps that led him to be confined in a room with his lover while catastrophe looms. As he takes inventory of the city's ills, a strange stone distorts reality, offering brief glimpses of the deserted territories of his memory. A sports game that beguiles the city with near-religious significance, the hugely popular gambling systems rigged by theDepartment of Chaos and Gaming,an upbringing in schools that disappeared classmates even if the plagues didn't-everything holds significance and nothing gives answers in the vision realm of his own making.The turbulent and sweeping world ofJakartaerupts with engrossing new dystopias and magnetic prose to provide a portrait of a fallen society that exudes both rage and resignation.
