Summary
"Playing with the expectations of the reader, Belletto constructs a logical puzzle that defies logic, much like the 'almost-perpetual motion machine' invented by the narrator and his father. What sets the story in (perpetual) motion is a package of frozen seafood. This lowly mechanism triggers a series of picaresque and otherworldly events, from the storyteller's meeting with Fate disguised as a beautiful woman, to the kidnapping of his daughter, to his amorous reunion with the younger half-sister of a high school friend, to the elimination of death from the world."--Page 4 of cover
