This is a story - like all stories - about love and hate, friendship and betrayal, life and death, and above all, the kind of world we want to build.

Like Wildfire Blazing is the debut novel by Mark Getty - and is an enigmatic look at the way power is exercised, ominously paralleling our current political landscape. Written in a unique, poetic style, imbued with wit and laden with references to ancient Greek and Roman history, this is unlike anything else you will read this year.

"We know that tonight we may not see dusk, and that from tomorrow's dawn our homes may never house us again. But now, right now, we are here in this world of trees, and sun, and wind, and rivers that run to seas, and seas that rise and fall like a beating heart .... We have good and bad and great and small; we have me for now, we have you, forever, I pray. But above all, we have hope. Tomorrow can wait."

This book is a strikingly beautiful publication that evokes the quality of a private press publication of another era.
