Erotic, exotic: classic Clive Barker.
EVERY FAMILY HAS A SECRET
As rich as the Rockefellers, as glamorous as the Kennedys, the Geary dynasty has held subtle sway over American life since the Civil War, brilliantly concealing the depths of its corruption. All that is about to change. For the Gearys are still at war. Their enemies are another dynasty – the Barbarossas – whose origins lie not in history but in myth, whose influence is felt not in Washington but in the sensual exchanges of flesh and soul.
When the prodigal prince of the Barbarossa clan, Galilee, falls in love with Rachael Geary, the pent-up loathing between the families erupts in a mutually destructive frenzy. Adulteries are laid bare. Secrets creep out. And insanity reigns.
Galilee is a massive tale, mingling the sharp realism of Barker’s bestseller Sacrament with the dark invention for which he’s known worldwide. The magical eroticism of Weaveworld, the chilling rituals of Hellraiser, the grand metaphysical visions of the Books of the Art – Galilee has room for them all.
