LONGLISTED FOR THE POLARI FIRST BOOK PRIZE 2017 - In Jerusalem's
Old City a young priest and a dominatrix converse in the dying
light; on Oregon's windswept coast a fragile woman discovers a body
washed up on the beach after a storm; and in Postwar Japan a young
protege watches his master's corpse burn, with bitter thoughts
blazing in his mind. Jerusalem Ablaze: Stories of Love and Other
Obsessions collects thirteen eclectic works of dark fiction, taking
the reader from Los Angeles to the eastern townships of Quebec, and
from Tokyo to Jerusalem. Ortega-Medina's characters are flawed,
broken individuals, trying their best to make sense of their lives
as they struggle with sexuality, death, obsession, and religion.
Sometimes bleak, occasionally violent, and often possessed of a
dark humour, this major debut explores the imperfections of life
and the unpredictability of death.
