The physiognomy
Jeffrey Ford
Adult Fiction FORD

Comments  Summary  Reviews

Summary: A feared and powerful functionary in Master Drachton Below's dark metropolis, the Well-Built City, Physiognomist First Class Cley can divine good or evil in a person by studying facial and bodily features. But now Cley has been ordered out of the city on a seemingly trivial assignment in the rural hinterlands. In a strange and unfamiliar place, far from the Master's omnipresent scrutiny, the great physiognomist falls prey to seductions of the flesh and the spirit. And there are inescapable revelations awaiting the eminent Cley that could shatter his perception of himself, his profession, and his world.
