Description: This magical novel by Governor General's and Trillium Prize nominee Mark Frutkin, set in thirteenth-century Venice and Cathay, is a dazzling frieze of arid deserts, the wafting scent of cardamom, and the mystical trill of a praying friar. It is the story of Marco Polo as he sets off across the sun-soaked silk route, the rich path of the carpet-makers and the black seas of the Indian Ocean. Doggedly pursued by an assassin of the Venetian Doge, he seeks refuge in the promised land of Kublai Khan. But Polo is haunted by the recurring appearance of a winged lion that lurks behind his dreams even upon his return to Venice. After a naval battle and capture by rival Genoa, he languishes in a jail cell recounting his tale to an incredulous inmate.
