Gustav Meyrink - The White Dominican
"The White Dominican is Meyrink's most esoteric novel, and draws on the wisdom of a number of mystical traditions, the most important of which is Tao. It is set in a mystical version of the Bavarian town of Wasserburg, which sits on a promontory surrounded on three sides by the River Inn.
The novel describes the spiritual journey of the simple hero, who, guided by a number of figures, escapes the ""Medusa's head"" of the world to a transfiguration, through which he joins the ""living chain"" that stretches to infinity.
This is the novel which has been eagerly awaited by those who see Meyrink as not just a novelist, but as a mystic visionary who can tell them what lies on the Other Side."
