A novel that opens in a strange bookshop. How can you go wrong after that? Hidden away in the pages of an old copy of Lives of the Saints in a strange secondhand bookshop is a diary brimming with heresy and claims of supernatural powers. When civil servant Mogul Franz stumbles across it he at first believes it to be the ravings of a mad man. But what if it is true? What if the anonymous author has really learned the secrets of controlling time? Could Mogul acquire the same skills and thereby correct the incongruities in his own life? Trapped in a mediocre job at a forgotten Ministry, his marriage falling apart, Mogul desperately searches for more hidden entries. He is led on an increasingly frantic chase through the bookstores, abandoned buildings and dark subways of Buenos Aires. #62184
