William Kotzwinkles classic 'grown up picture book' 'Herr Nightingale And The Satin Woman' combines an eerily beautiful love story against the backdrop of Germany, France, Egypt and China, as it follows a detective through Europe & beyond, in the aftermath of World War I, as he pursues a German officer and his companion; as the book progresses, the cast increasingly enters a surreal world; a haunting and memorable modern mythical journey with an outrageous eroticism that has the reader baffled and entertained simultaneously; this book tells just as much via Servello's b/w. noir-inspired illustrations as it does through the text itself.
