"The Riddle of the Seal" is the first episode of Chronicles of the Greater Dream by Miguel Errazu A sweeping epic of tremendous scope, imagination and sensibility. "It is in the tradition of the great fantasies - I think of Ossian and Garcia Marquez. Just what the world needs at this perilous time." James Goldsborough, former foreign correspondent at the International Herald-Tribune. The story: Teddy, an amnesic youth, is detained in secret prison at the heart of a nameless desert. One day, a child beckons and leads him into the fearful waste. Three men are waiting. They whisk him away and fly him to Gondwana, a huge nation-continent forgotten by the world. The author's astonishing powers of invention propel us beyond time and space, into a strangely familiar world that is a mirror-image of our own. Izhar Cohen's witty and poetic illustrations weave a delightful counterpoint into the three episodes of these Chronicles that relate Teddy's epic journey through the land. Setting it down, we begin to wonder: when we already have the inexhaustible magic of the everyday, what further magic is required?
