The novel follows a lowly salesman, an information gatherer, a private detective and a teenage psychic. Four stories, four people - each of them connected to the bizarre fate of Zeno, its bitter heir, and a hostile faery spirit named Mama Lujo.
Here is one city's epic tale told in seventy-five chapters, each influenced by a different iconic figure. From Lewis Carroll to Patti Smith, from Sigmund Freud to Raymond Chandler and Sophie Calle - the ghosts haunting the streets of Lujo are all conjured from the collective unconscious of the modern media age.
Mappalujo is baroque science fiction, tumbling with ideas and images, exuberant to the extreme. It documents a world only a few metres and a few minutes away from our own - yet stranger by far."
