New York jazz pianist whose career was cut short by a neurological disease, returns
from a failed suicide attempt with a vivid, detailed memory of his journey
through the afterlife. Resembling the world as he knows it, but unlimited in
space and time, it’s unlike any eternity he has contemplated. Its residents are
those who choose not to reincarnate, which would erase all memory of who they
has a quest: to find his beloved Lucy, a yoga teacher who shared his apartment
for years but died of leukemia before he took his own life. Is she still here?
Has she waited for him, or “gone back” to become someone else? In his odyssey
across centuries and locales (Istanbul to the Marquesas Islands, India to
Oklahoma to New Guinea) to find her, Kip is guided by Walt Whitman, who urges
him to write this memoir on his return.
