    Summary

    Conditions are as they were in the first part: Mobile, Alabama, in 2010 against the backdrop of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Capitalism is present in this story about insecure, wealthy, white men in much the same manner that honey might be present in a story about bees. And this story is about power, in all of its (horrible) forms.

    And again, “it is always from the depths of its impotence that each power center draws its power, hence their extreme maliciousness, and vanity.” (Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari in Capitalism and Schizophrenia: A Thousand Plateaus). And that is what happens in this story, in between all the expansive long-take nothing, constant hipsterism and the periodic sexing and angsting.

    Summary

    This, I intended as the novel that Lestat writes some ten years after Blood Canticle. Subject to revision, probably.

    It is set in Mobile, Alabama, in 2010 against the backdrop of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Lestat & Louis attempt an "adult" relationship by having couples therapy & Lestat attempts being a Serious Writer of Serious Novels, to some effect (he also plays in a covers band). But really it is about power, of multiple kinds. For example, to paraphrase Kurt Vonnegut Jnr., capitalism is present in this story about insecure, wealthy, white men in much the same manner that honey might be present in a story about bees.

    To wit, with regard to that: “it is always from the depths of its impotence that each power center draws its power, hence their extreme maliciousness, and vanity.” (Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari in Capitalism and Schizophrenia: A Thousand Plateaus). And that is what happens in this story, in between all the expansive long-take nothing, constant hipsterism and the periodic sexing and angsting.
