Cá me encontro na leitura desta admirável obra de Andrew Hook, publicado pela Eibonvale Press.
Through dreamscape wonderment, fetishism, guilt, loss and love, these twenty-one stories map both physical and internal environments. Hook’s familiar themes of identity, memory, and the nature of reality thread multiple genres to form a dense cartographic exploration of the human condition.informação da editora

It’s the little things that make this book literally “scream” at you: the bizarre, the despair, the obsessive – the love, the pain.
What I like most about the 21 stories of ‘Human Maps’ is that they don’t offer (m)any answers or conclusions; quite haunting.
A curse for the mind – oh, yeah!
P.S. and this opinion does not say too much either: I’m dysfunctionally cold…
