The Muse Asylum by David Czuchlewski
The Muse Asylum

BSAofRuthless, March 20, 2007

I rarely enjoy contemporary authors, but this book was by far one of the best I've read. Czhchlewski spins a beautifully crafted web of obsession, anxiety, love and ambiguity that holds his readers and his characters in flux until the very last page. This story holds points of interest for everybody, including bits of mythology, philosophy, and even fairy tales. Amazing read, I hope everyone takes the time to at the very least peruse this fantastic debut novel.
