David Leo Rice, author of A Room in Dodge City, has produced another literary foray into a deeply strange place. With a mysterious Professor Squimbop, we take a sea voyage to a distant city--a city that looks normal, but may or may not be all the reality there is. Time moves differently here--at least sometimes. People revert to earlier forms of themselves. Space is-- sometimes --discontinuous. And Death is a character to be reckoned with. Told with deadpan matter-of-factness, Angel House is a wild ride into a place where reality is under construction, and its seams are showing.
David Leo Rice graduated from Harvard with a concentration in Esoteric Studies, where he explored the mythic, gothic, and surreal elements in history and in our own times. His first novel was A Room in Dodge City, a genre-defying narrative--part political allegory-- of an American town that is far from what it seems. He grew up in Northampton.
