The year is 1941, and Hitler’s armies are sweeping across Europe.
Nora, a budding young Surrealist artist, has fled to Mexico with B.B., a much older and acclaimed Surrealist playwright down on his luck. Hundreds of European artists and writers have formed a colony in Mexico City, and Nora befriends Valencia, a fellow Surrealist artist and refugee.
Together the friends explore Jungian psychology and the power of symbols in their extraordinary, visionary Art.
But Nora is plagued by an abusive relationship with B.B. She embarks on a harrowing journey of the soul deep into her own troubled psyche.
Inspired by the lives and friendship of the brilliant Surrealist artists Remedios Varo and Leonora Carrington.
A summary of the artists’ lives and a list of Sources follows the novella.
