Henry Dark has long believed that the world around him is a thin veil masking the true reality of existence. Strange events start taking place, inducing him to take a trip West with his beloved wife Alice. Their trip leads to the Lagoon of Lost Loves as well as a riddle duel with the King of the Trolls.
Is there such a thing as meaning? Henry asks himself, as he struggles to understand the very words he uses. Is language a Cage of Light that captures meaning, or has the meaning escaped? And does the trip they’ve taken draw Henry and Alice closer together, or is she to be a sacrifice in his search for the truth?
If you’ve ever asked yourself, “What is it with all these words and do they have anything to do with meaning?” then this is the book for you. Surreal and absurd, using language to express what can’t be expressed with language, Cage of Light will have you wondering if you ever understood anything in the first place.
Scroll back to the top and start your voyage with Henry and Alice. You never know where it’ll lead.
