The Festival of Earthly Delights
A NoveleBook - 2012
The Festival of Earthly Delights is a humorous bildungsroman set in the fictional Southeast Asian country of Puchai. The protagonist, Boyd Darrow, has recently moved there with his unfaithful girlfriend to give their relationship a second chance. His adventures, and misadventures, are relayed in a series of letters to a mysterious recipient. February 19 8:23 AM Dear Hap: A new position falls into the hands of one who, living, dreams. I bought this notebook in the airport when we arrived in Puchai, and, instead of keeping a journal-which always feels lonely and pointless to me-I've decided to write you a letter. IT WILL COME TRUE. Ulla and I are in the Central Dakhong Railway Station, waiting for the 12:13 train to Mai Mor. The station is rumbling and hot and cavernous and painted floor-to-ceiling in volcanic orange. Ulla has wandered off in search of a bathroom and I'm sitting on a bench, guarding our bags. And-where are you? Matt Dojny lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife, new baby, and dog. He is currently a graphic designer for Scholastic Books, and recently co-authored an illustrated essay called "Impossible Sightseeing" in A Public Space.
