This book contains a very convoluted story of a man (Chubb) who wrote poems then created a poet and got them published using this fake man's identity. He later is visited by a man who claims to be this poet - given life devoid of childhood - because he was created by Chubb. The book is filled with more smells and textures than any book I've ever read.
