The novel begins when Wakefield, an "inspirational speaker" and architecture enthusiast, is visited by the Devil, who tells him his time is up. Not yet ready, Wakefield strikes a bargain with Satan and sets off on a cross-country journey to understand his life and times and find his "authentic" self. It's Wakefield's continuing exploration of architecture—and our national obsession with restoration of our cities, of our buildings, of our bodies, of life itself—that drives him to question what is inside and what is outside reality. In the end, in an attempt to "restore" his own world, Wakefield decides he must remake it in a shocking act.

    " I especially liked his investigation of architecture as it relates to the social sciences, ancient mythologies, and, my favorite, hidden spaces. "

    " Love to listen to essays read on the radio by Andrei Codrescu. His sharp, pointed insights into how we live and playing with words are unmatched. However, there is something missing from this novel particularly a conclusive ending and well thought-out characters. "

    " The writing style is similar to Tom Robbins. It covers an immense amount of material, all threaded around a single plot, but it's much less well done than Robbins. "
