This is amazing!

Basically this is the story of a town and some of the events that happened before the town fell. However, time is meaningless here; everything is memory and sadness and violence and sin and shame.

I love the notion of ‘falsifying boundaries’: here the living and the dead intermix (in fact couplets are common in this story), there are holes in the roof to heaven – no boundaries: all flat plains.
