On Dream Detection (for Jedediah Berry)

T. Renner, "On Dream Detection (for Jedediah Berry)," 2011, acrylic on canvas panel, 9" x 12".

Jedediah Berry's novel The Manual of Detection chronicles the efforts of Charles Unwin, recently promoted from clerk to detective, to solve the mystery of the disappearance of detective Travis Sivart. Set in an undefined time and place of manual typewriters and never-ending rain, The Manual of Detection eludes easy description like trying to recount a dream.
