About this title

Synopsis:

A prisoner with a haunted past is released into ravaged Los Angeles, where he pursues an elusive girl to the shores or Rubicon Beach and faces his lost destiny. In his second novel, Steve Erickson creates a decaying world filled with leftover passions and poetic vision that established him as one of the most original and evocative American writers of his generation.

From Library Journal:

Through ponderous, interwoven tales travels a dark, mysterious woman who dazzles men and makes them act silly. In the futuristic Los Angeles of an unspecified cataclysm, Cale witnesses his own murder at the hands of this elusive beauty. Somewhere in South America, she ties herself to a tree with her hair and signals to a sailor with her lighthouse eyes, then winds up as domestic help in modern-day Los Angeles, where, by staring a lot and saying little, she drives a frustrated writer into a frenzy. Finally, she mesmerizes a recluse in England with the old lighthouse trick, and he turns out to be the Cale of the first storyminus the futurism. This contrived, humorless mishmash of pseudo-fantasy and mystery leaves one hopelessly confused. The characters are pure Hollywood, straight from a B movie. Leonard Kniffel, Detroit P.L.
