Years after the suicide of her schizophrenic mother, Detroit-based musician Jing Elwood awakes on Psyche, an asteroid of glittery dunes and oases of bone, where spirit animals feed off “visions” received from Earth. With the help of several such animals, Jing searches out a path home, all the while receiving visions in which she discovers her band has fallen apart, the lead singer murdered under puzzling circumstances, and Jing herself is institutionalized and convinced she is living in the third-person perspective. Has Jing inherited her mother’s disorder? Is Psyche reality? Follow along on her by turns horrifying and enchanting odyssey to discover the strange truth for yourself.
