Description

This riveting narrative poem -- which might be called a mini-epic -- mines little-known aspects of World War II history into a melange of African invasions, angry Egyptian gods, rampant Mormon warriors, and the lord of sleepwalkers, Dr. Calilgari. The book is decorated with a collage of The Egyptian Book of the Dead, Mormon mythology, and Nazi-era iconography.
