In the early 1970s in northern New Mexico, a hitch-hiker, a man on the run, finds himself in a small, rural village. The village is no average village and its vaudeville of characters, who run the gamut from the mystical to the ludicrous, have a secret. A romance of frenzied alcoholism and an adventure of out-of-luck anthropomorphism, The Galaxy Club is a mythological roman noir. Both savage and poetic, its hypnotic rhythms provide gyroscopic balance for a highwire of tragicomedy and magical spectacle.
