The Lost Land

$ 185.00

This is a modern day fairy tale about Mnemosyne, a self-proclaimed “witch of memories” living in a cave located in an overgrown and crumbling playground. People come to seek her help, but ultimately it’s up to each individual to construct a personal past and future. In the end, it’s Mnemosyne who has no control of her own destiny, and is buried in the destruction of these ancient sacred grounds for the sake of commercial progress. The story is by Lawrence Pun, an award-winning author based in Hong Kong.
