First English edition, Paperback, New,
68 pp.

“This novella's ambiguous narrator sets off for the isolated locale of Rogomele --where a crumbling monastery serves as a sanatorium and offers a cure involving a diet of plants and flowers - and moves through a waking dream of strangely scented monks, vibratory concerts in a cavernous ossuary and ritualist pomp with costumes of octopi and shining beetles. As the days unfold, the narrator discovers that the ‘the celebration of the king’ is approaching, the events of which will lead to a shocking discovery in Rogomelec's Gothic ruins. This first English translation includes 14 drawings by Fini that accompanied the novella's original publication.” #65991
