Item description for Wolf at the Door by Travis Jeppesen...
This is an absurdist drama of banal interactions via two parallel stories that never directly intersect, but rather hover interdependently in a polluted atmospheric stasis. A sculptor dying of a mysterious illness leaves the city behind in order to live out his final days in solitude in an Eastern Europe village. His sole contact is with a deaf-mute, golem-like gravedigger named Vojtech, who delivers his provisions. A nameless wanderer traverses the barren streets of an unknown city in search of prey . Rife with ghosts and illusions perdues, at times violent and scatological, Wolf at the Door confronts fear and devastation, destruction and creation, the decay of both spirit and body with a blend of black humor and linguistic inventiveness that dares to question what happens after the end of both art and life.
