The Tea of Ulaanbaatar
A NovelBook - 2011
In his debut novel, Christopher Howard travels to the furthest and rarely seen reaches of the world, Mongolia. Warren is a disaffected Peace Corps volunteer who flees life in late capitalist America to find himself stationed in the post-industrialist urban hell of Mongolia. Needing to find an escape from his escape, Warren seeks solace in 'tsus', the mysterious blood tea that may be the final revenge of the defeated Khans - or that may be only a powerful hallucinogen operating on an uneasy mind - as a phantasmagoria of violence slowly envelops him.
