In the Cities of Coin and SpiceandIn the Night Gardenintroduced readers to the unique and intoxicating imagination of Catherynne M. Valente. Now she weaves a lyrically erotic spell of a place where the grotesque and the beautiful reside and the passport to our most secret fantasies begins with a stranger's kiss.... Between life and death, dreaming and waking, at the train stop beyond the end of the world is the city of Palimpsest. To get there is a miracle, a mystery, a gift, and a cursea voyage permitted only to those who've always believed there's another world than the one that meets the eye. Those fated to make the passage are marked forever by a map of that wondrous city tattooed on their flesh after a single orgasmic night. To this kingdom of ghost trains, lion-priests, living kanji, and cream-filled canals come four travelers: Oleg, a New York locksmith; the beekeeper November; Ludovico, a binder of rare books; and a young Japanese woman named Sei. They've each lost something importanta wife, a lover, a sister, a direction in lifeand what they will find in Palimpsest is more than they could ever imagine.

Catherynne M. Valente is a New York Times best-selling author of fantasy and science fiction novels, short stories, and poetry. She lives on a small island off the coast of Maine with her husband, two dogs, one enormous friendly cat and one less enormous, less friendly one, and six chickens. She has been nominated for or has won every major award in the science fiction/fantasy field, including the Hugo, World Fantasy, Locus James Tiptree Jr., Andrew Norton, and Mythopoeic awards.
