336 pages

Explores the meaning that different cultures have attached to water.

"Part social and cultural history, and part personal credo, "Haunts of the Black Masseur" is an exhilarating plunge into some of the deepest pools inside our heads." - J.G. Ballard
"This splendid and wholly original book is as zestful as a plunge in champagne." - Iris Murdoch
"A wholly original idea...a brilliant translation of a singular passion." - Alan Ross, "TLS"
