The Tale of Brian and the House Painter Mervyn

1 - 2 Weken

Here is a fable about what happens -when young Brian with a mysterious illness is confined to a white White WHITE room four flights up in his family's Goodly Home to avoid all excitement until a cure is found... -when Brian cries in grief for everything he has lost- the Sun and Moon, the White Sea-Dragon who curls from the Sea-fogs on the cliffs at night, the Sea, Great White-peaked Mountain, and the ancient but modern and madly eccentric town of Sandstone-by-the-Sea... -when his father Moab hires the always angry Mervyn, a mere House Painter, to paint Brian's walls with views of everything he misses- for no artist will paint things just as they are- and who paints it all so well it is a New World to explore and run free in and abandon the Old, as does Brian... -when the Village goes mad, and Moab goes mad, for Brian is lost, and the Tourists are mad to find Mervyn and to get something Realer than Real, and all other businesses collapse... -when Mervyn finds a solution no one expects..
