Now I Know is all at once a compelling meditation on faith and religion—and the difference between the two—and an intense love story.
When a body is found hanging from a crane in a scrapyard, Tom sets out to investigate this strange case. Nik embarks on a research mission for a film about a contemporary life of Jesus. Then there's Julie, a girl bandaged from head to toe and laid up in a hospital bed.
These three simultaneous plots— presented through a combination of letters, prose, poetry, jotted notes, flashbacks, and puzzles—are woven together into a provocative novel of mystery and self-discovery.
Like the other books in The Dance Sequence, Now I Know can be read alone or as part of the series.
