This Side of Heaven

This Side of Heaven

by Cyril Wong
Unit price


A comedian, a nun, a reality TV star and countless others meet in a garden. This is not the start of a joke, but the beginnings of a parable. Self-justifications ensue, as well as rationalisations for what these characters are doing here. These denizens might be running out of time, while there is all the time in their Kafkaesque world, and an orchestra is playing a song nobody else may hear.
