Chimerica is a sweeping Murakamiesue Romance unraveling the mysteries ofintellectual property law Merging the mundane and the magical Felicelli s leaping lemur illustrates the illimitable essentially illicit nature of Art Try to possess ideas images etc and they will easily elude your grasp to circulate in the unincorporated realm of inter subjectivity What is the work of Art and how does one codify it commodify it or restrict its use And to whom does it belong artist owner or public Or are these nonsensical propositions A spirited play of nonsense will animate this half real half imagined country of ChimericaReminiscent of such diverse works as A Frolic of His Own and The Master Margarita Chimerica reveals the inherent absurdity of that most logical construct Law in its broadest sense As dueling egos try to disengage from their imposed identities each character must confront the chaos of a world in which nothing can be truly possessed and even the laws of physics are subject to gaps and fissures From the striving anti hero a woman of color as rarely cast to the self indulgent mural born lemur to the legal system which will try him as a matter of course He is a fiction mere dabs of paint Still not above the law good sir these phantasmal figures find themselves far flung from Oakland to a Malagasy rain forest via the whims of pure possibility
