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.
