What is it that we strive for, that we tiptoe along the precipice of insanity for, and that we fall to our knees upon a landscape of broken black glass, screaming to the moonless night sky for? For... More > Aaron, it is love, true love, and only by facing the madness of the world, rising through the black waters in which he has been drowned, will he ever find it. Yet for those with the depth, the density, and the fortitude of spirit, no task is impossible. This novel is riddled with hidden references to songs, movies, and characters from other books. There are many allusions to spirituality and morality, as well as multiple philosophical quotes. It is a book about the growth of the human spirit, the paradoxes of life, and the warmth that is slowly dwindling from humanity as a whole. It will make you smile, laugh, cry, and then wonder if you ever truly understood what Love was before.< Less

With all the candles lighted in the great glass chandelier, and no sidelights, so that the broken paneling was mercifully obscured by gloom, it was easy to believe that the great empress herself had sat in one of the tall old chairs and listened to anecdotes of questionable character; even, if tradition may be believed, related not a few herself. The chandelier was not lighted on this rainy November night. Outside in the garden the trees creaked and bent before the wind, and the heavy barred gate, left open by the last comer, a piano student named Scatchett and dubbed "Scatch"—the gate slammed to and fro monotonously, giving now and then just enough pause for a hope that it had latched itself,...< Less
