In this searing and beautiful novel, Rider Sonnenreich, a young poet, retrieves memories of wild acts of imagination that once bound his sister Leya and him together. Retracing the travels of long-dead poets in Europe, Rider looks for Leya, but can’t be sure who or what he will find in the end. Among restless cosmopolitans and enigmatic wanderers, he tries to sort the real from the illusory and to protect the latter from the former. Cotler takes the reader on an American odyssey of innocence abroad, through beauty, truth, and the danger our imaginations face in a culture of high-speed popular media.
