The Fountains of Neptune

American Literature Series
Rikki Ducornet

“My sleep began in the spring of 1914. I slept through both World Wars and the tainted calm between. It was as if I had been cursed by an evil fairy, pricked by an enchanted spinning wheel; an impenetrable briar had gripped my mind.”

Thus begins Rikki Ducornet’s brilliant lyric novel about Nicolas who, as a result of witnessing his mother’s murder, falls into a decades-long coma. Awakened in a seaport town in France, he reconstructs his past through storytelling and myth, resulting in an astonishing exploration of memory and imagination.
