From two-time Giller Prize winner Moyez Vassanji comes a taut, ingenuous, and dynamic novel about a future where eternal life is possible, and identities can be chosen. In the indeterminate future, the threat of the brain's storage capacity being overwhelmed, people want to be free from redundant, unwanted, and interfering memories. All traces of a person's past are erased. On occasion, cracks emerge, and reminders of discarded lives seep through. Those afflicted burrow in the conscious mind threatening to pull sufferers into an internal abyss.
