The PhysiognomyeBook - 2015
"Winner of the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel: Cley has mastered the art of physiognomy--and now he is about to learn its ultimate truth. In the Well-Built City, Master Drachton Below's power is absolute, and he will not hesitate to use it. His primary method of control is through his physiognomists, who are trained to read a person's face and body, perceiving that person's past and secrets--and even events yet to come. These seers are the judges and jury. Now Drachton has found something that could extend his reign for eternity: a fruit that bestows immortality. To investigate its whereabouts, Below sends cold, collected physiognomist Cley to the remote mining town of Anamasobia. One at a time Cley interrogates the townspeople, performing his usual fact finding without issue. That is, until he meets the beautiful and bright Arla, who harbors a secret that could potentially turn Cley's world upside down--and topple the Well-Built City itself. A Kafkaesque journey into the unknown, " The Physiognomy " is an award-winning trip through a land where the line between reality and imagination is constantly blurred.".
