Gifted or cursed, Lix w has six living reminders of what he did, with whom, and all in the pursuit of the elusive dream of love. Set in the beguiling City of Kisses, this seamless vel charts the history of a loving, baffled man in what emerges as a mischievous meditation on eternal sexual conundrums of love, power, parenthood and desire.
