Summary
Framed as an elaborate afterword to The Hoegbotton Guide to the Early History of Ambergris, this novel-within-a-novel is narrated by the sister of the guide's author, famed Ambergris historian Duncan Shriek, who is also the obsessed victim of a failed love affair. With frequent sardonic asides (in brackets) by Duncan himself, the story line ambles through the Shriek clan's scandal--ridden past while unearthing the minutiae of Ambergris' haunted, eccentric history
Summary
When historian Duncan, brother to the ex-society figure Janice Shriek, becomes obsessed with a doomed love affair and a secret that risks his life, his challenges are further complicated by a war between rival publishing houses
