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.
