A novel about time-reversal that combines adventure story, thriller, metaphysics and literary pastiche in the tale of a bored, disillusioned, middle-aged, late 20th Century man who decides to fake his own death and embark on a more rewarding new life. But in the process something has entered his soul and he finds himself travelling not only into the past but also into his own and some unknown stranger's past in a pilgrimage backwards through life, history and literature in which each chapter is written in the style of an earlier century. His journey mirrors the different stages in the lives of men and nations, teaching him to understand his own mistakes and ultimately to make peace with the world and himself.
