Our hero is sent to colonial China in search of a man, with little more than a book of the man's stories to go on. Stories which, despite our hero's efforts, seem more interesting than his own. The Pig That Boils The Ocean is an exploration of narrative and the exotic, part short stories, part longer narrative, written in the spirit of Calvino's If on a winter's night a traveler, Kawabata's palms-of-the-hand and Hesse's fairy tales. www.pigocean.com
