Description
Enter The Muse Asylum and watch the lives of three recent college graduates become entangled by romantic and literary obessions, and by their search to uncover the identity of the great modern American writer Horace Jacob Little: Jake Burnett, a young reporter and reverent fan of the reclusive author, determined to make a name for himself by unmasking the legend; Andrew Wallace, a disturbed genius and inmate of the Overlook Psychiatric Institute for artists, who is convinced that Horace Jacob Little is plotting against him; and Lara Knowles, the girl they both love.The three try to break through the shadows and tricks of the enigmatic author, only to find themselves caught in a twisted game of reflections and reversals, where each seems to be pursuing another - for love, for success, or for some far more sinister purpose. And with the truth becoming more and more blurred by literary mind games, Jake dismisses Andrew's paranoid fantasies as being simply the result of too many Horace Jacob Little stories - strange tales of men without memories, of visitors from Dante's Inferno. As Andrew becomes increasingly distraught, and perhaps dangerous, the quest for the author threatens to unhinge everyone involved. And Jake begins to wonder: Who is Horace Jacob Little, and what is he trying to hide?
