The story begins when a thirty-six year old popular Columbia University English professor is found wandering in the Nevada desert. His wife comes to bring him home they discover that he has a small brain tumor. The tumor is removed in order to save his life but the result is that he seems to remember nothing of his life beyond the age of twelve. He has permanently lost most of his life's memories. The professor, a keenly intelligent and sensitive man returns to a life in which he finds everything strange and new to him. His alienation from his own life leads him to accept the invitation of charismatic scientist to participate in a bold and sinister-sounding memory experiment in which the memories of one human are grafted into another person's brain. The former professor hopes the transplanted memories will give him something to anchor his new life to and save him from the limbo he feels he is trapped in. The experiment is partially successful with the former professor obtaining the memories of a desert eccentric's experiences as a soldier witnessing a test nuclear explosion. Unsatisfied with these results, the former professor resumes his quest for identity which leads him to seek out his own medical records and the resting place of his dead mother. In the process of achieving these quests, through the aid of an alcoholic teenager and a senile uncle, he becomes reconciled to his new condition of mind. 8.25"x5.25", 319 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed.
