Mirror Cities tells the story of the enigmatic JoJo, a man whose longing for a child is answered when he discovers a baby floating in a basket along Prinsengracht. He names the child Annick and raises her as his own. However, their happiness is destroyed when Nazis invade Amsterdam, for nothing can disguise the fact that Annick is Jewish.

And yet, Annick does not die at the hands of the Nazis, instead, armed with the last present JoJo gives her, a diary, in which he has written, 'Journey through time, through Mirror Cities, listen to stories, hear how it all began...Discover how it will all end...' she embarks on a quest to discover an amazing treasure, encountering Cleopatra, Jack Kerouac, TinTin, Pinocchio, Marc Chagall, the Little Prince, even the Beatles, along the way.

Mirror Cities is a fairy tale for the 21st Century; a century dominated by technology, where nothing is quite what it seems... It questions the boundaries of time and space, science and religion, life and death, and asks: what does it mean to be human? What is the nature of consciousness?

Reflecting the iconography of Anne Frank, this magical tale is both whimsical and unsettling and will appeal to readers interested in more than just being told a story; those who are also interested in philosophy and spirituality.
