Not unlike The Idiot, which inspired this novel, the AG is a mystic, who works as a go-go-dancer- a clairvoyant who designs clothes of the future. She lives in a Bowery loft with The Anarchist, an ex-IRA militant, who silkscreens posters for Food for Vendettas--peace through organic food, and Sandy, a video verite artist-nihilist, who uses her position as a switch board operator as a base of power. The story is told through the clear and compassionate eyes of Wayne, a deaf-mute journalist for the cultish News World run by the Llama, whose existential religion is the basis of a business empire. Character becomes destiny. As passion and hypocrisy erupt in a cloud of dust, the AG must save her imperiled city.
