With skin . . . too white to be quite black and too black to be quite white, Sally is loved only to the extent that she can be possessed, and finds hope only in the promise that her childrens lives will be different from her own. The couples paradox-riven union echoes through the ages and in an alternate epoch where time plays by other rules. In Aeonopolis, a theocratic city at the foot of a volcano, priests seek to have Sally indicted, and in an emptied-out Berlin, the Wall is being rebuilt. Dizzyingly imaginative, Arc dX is an unrivaled exploration of the pursuit of happiness.
