About the Book
This rare novel, this work of fiction, is your invitation. A place of enchantment exists; it is sometimes hidden in seemingly ordinary experiences, in seemingly ordinary landscapes. Everything about it is sacred, even if it is not believed to be magical or metaphysical, but rather an illusion. The ancient legendary ball games, the jesters, the music, the gambling, and the trade of maize, or of turquoise: these are part of a ritual, where the reader (traveling through the words of a fiction) deciphers an individual meaning. The story sometimes changes for different readers; though, not always… Yet, the meaning is always unique for each reader. What character you assume is you, is not always you; sometimes it is a mask... So, this is your invitation to journey into a fiction. Perhaps you will find it enchanting.
