Summary, Etc. "Antonio works making spreadsheets for Bank of America, but not-so-secretly wants to be a great writer-or indeed to do anything that will help him avoid thinking about his sister, a paranoid schizophrenic on the run from the police. Antonio's attempts to write a novel become an ekphrastic performance of avoidance and evasion, darting between the past and the present to consider relationships erotic and familial, the worlds of architecture and literature, and how these languages might affect our lives"-- Provided by publisher.
