From the Publisher
Annotation Reality and hallucination, possibility and despair, fact and fiction (or really fiction and metafiction)--all are blurred in Jack O'Connell's imaginative and stirring novel THE RESURRECTIONIST. A story of a father's emotional turmoil over a son's recovery (resurrection) from a coma bleeds into a comic-book storyline about circus types in a land known as Limbo.
Editors Note Sweeney, a druggist, takes a job at the fortresslike Peck Clinic, where he hopes his comatose son will be "resurrected" as other patients there have been, but finds that salvation may instead lie within a comic book.
