SOBER IS THE NEW HIGH
What’s right around here? Hoytakoy! Here comes The Emperor of Trumpedaria, a personage with his own angle towards the running of things. His aim seems to be getting people to remember who they really are and act accordingly. Arriving in a Nordic country which has already placed itself on the world map aiming to serve as a model to others, he immediately strikes up friendship with the king, whereupon the two set out on a somewhat different course around the country. Meeting with numerous people and situations, things have a tendency to alter, eventually bringing people together, reminding them they are all playing in the same band.
His mission: the sounds and notes are out in all corners. It is for people to piece them right together. A genuine lover of music, he finds this to be a trait in a number of people along his course.
Is the emperor flawless? If not, does it matter? He is a rather obscure figure. He is lucid. Anyway; what speaks louder?
From readers in UK:
“I liked the odd-ball mix of fable and philosophy.”
“I now know what rock’n roll means, or do I?”
“Strangely compelling. The story comes across as an interesting blend of the Incrediblania stories, Alice in Wonderland and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. A fictional setting within the modern world, not quite comedy, but light-hearted and laidback.”
