In a city tantalisingly part historical, part fantastical, Blod falls in love with Ellen Bogen, subject of Hopper’s Summertime.As Blod struggles to persuade a magazine editor to commission some articles from him, he encounters the homeless C.O. Jones begging on a commuter train. Jones claims to be trapped in a “vicious circle” and shows Blod a book that causes Blod to slip through a crack in reality and find himself driving along a road nothing to do with the city in which he lives.A gas station attendant fills his car’s tank with “liquid amber”, and directs him towards Fulcrum.

Here, Jones re-appears to provoke Blod with questions about distant memories.Blod’s answers propel him along a bizarre storyline. By its culmination, Blod realises his experiences have taught him to better appreciate the “liquid amber” of the present moment.Liquidambar combines the atmosphere of Philip Marlowe’s adventures with Hopper’s characters and imagery in a surprisingly fresh detective mystery.
