He must return to Thebes and clean out the house where his family lived for five generations. While there he begins a romance rooted in the past, remembers San Francisco in the boom years, and mourns the loss of Swan, a madman who may have been the only person to understand what was happening to the city and to the world.

I could not finish this book, though it had a high rating and sounded like a good story. The story meandered to the point I became frustrated and procrastinated reading further. I did not have the focus to follow or understand what the writer wanted to say. This book was not entertaining for me and I could not recommend to others.
