Illicit Blade of Grass

by John Reyer Afamasaga

A writer feasts while a ghost and her hungry soul wait in the south of France.American scribe Metofeaz Litigatti swaps places with a published writer who once dated his wife. Metofeaz begins to write while staying at a villa in the south of France that is haunted by the ghost of Rozelle Zofen, a singer who was unlucky in love and who had waited in vain for a poet all her life after he recited the poem Illicit Blade of Grass during a party at the villa sometime around World War II.Metofeaz meets the Tourist, a young woman looking for a place to stay for the night, at the local village restaurant. Not long after they meet, Metofeaz returns to New York, where he is unhappy and eventually loses everything, including his wife. The Tourist ends up staying at the villa, which she makes her home, and even takes on the identity of Rozelle, as if the ghost’s misery were her own destiny.Years later, Rozelle comes to New York and tracks down Metofeaz, who is by now an Author, not just any author, but the co-author of John Lazoo, the novel. They now have the right to be together, but Metofeaz has an apatite for creating and is dead set on making the most of the fame he has gained from the success of Lazoo.
