An hallucinogenic mid-life crisis/adventure, and homage to Malcolm Lowry and Hermann Hesse. An American expatriate and his Japanese wife set out on a journey to Europe to retrace a path from his youth. What lies ahead--a trip through the Magic Theater, a sudden death, an encounter with Lowry's ghost, and a descent into the Capuchin Crypt in Rome--will change their lives irrevocably. "A journey in miles and of states of mind. The reader travels through Europe with an American expatriate who recapitulates his past in a transcendental and evocative fashion.... An insightful and very enjoyable read."--David Echt, author of Messenger from the Summer of Love.
