In stock

A tale of a Golem in pursuit of community and a greater purpose for a man of clay who has trouble dating and simply relaxing. “Sleep Cinematic” is a quartet of books which follows the Golem, Pearl, seeking to be a part of a congregation, unsatisfied by his role of protector. Sent to protect his community he feels alienated by not having a choice., He begins to step away from his alienation when he is help up by a Quebecoise Rabbit (Jarry), who has considered a life of crime following a ghastly lawnmower accident that destroyed his family. Lost in anger, he tries to start a life of crime starting by mugging Pearl. Proved to be a failure as a thief, Pearl welcomes Jarry into his world. An opera-loving mouse (Fred) found in an alley during a rainstorm completes the story’s main trio. Fred discovered in a trap lives to meet the love of his life – an opera singer he calls Soprano Jo. When Pearl suggests the Evil Eye has thus far plagued and limited them, the trio steals a model fo the Santa Maria in search of a special fish needed to thwart such a curse. Finding guidance from various spirits, Pearl, Jarry, and Fred step away from being wanderers to finding purpose. The Evil Eye proved to be whatever held them from taking the right risks. Perhaps this might be considered a modern beast fable. It is certainly a story of lost souls during rather troubling times.
