Carpe Noctem is a dark, cynical, mildly Kafkaesque, psychogeographical travelogue of a misanthropic software engineer. A tragicomedy, with a few dashes of Angostura, a touch of cruciverbalism and a peppering of cynical verse. At the start of the book, we travel through a feverish nightmare. The core of the book reflects the vibe of our character's recuperation and just one night at his hotel.
