Now I Kw is all at once a compelling meditation on faith and religionand the difference between the twoand an intense love story. When a body is found hanging from a crane in a scrapyard, Tom sets out to investigate this strange case. Nik embarks on a research mission for a film about a contemporary life of Jesus. Then there s Julie, a girl bandaged from head to toe and laid up in a hospital bed. These three simultaneous plots presented through a combination of letters, prose, poetry, jotted tes, flashbacks, and puzzlesare woven together into a provocative vel of mystery and self-discovery. Like the other books in The Dance Sequence, Now I Kw can be read alone or as part of the series.
