King of the Grasshoppers, by Joel Biroco

Frank is on the run. He shacks up with a German waitress called Lyra in an English seaside town. Frank is a master of disguise and has understated supernatural powers. Lyra is obsessed by deadly nightshades. Funny, sad, obscene, a love story with existential ponderings, purple wigs, parallel universes, and the grasshopper king. Written 2007–2008. 185 pages in print PDF.
