Tours of the Black Clock (1989)

By Steve Erickson

Cutting a terrifying path from a Pennsylvania farm to the Europe of the 1930s, Banning Jainlight becomes the private pornographer of the world's most evil man. In a Vienna window he glimpses a lost erotic dream and travels to the Twentieth Century's darkest corner, to confront a clock with no face where memory is the gravity of time and all the numbers fall like rain.
