David Glass is a man without a history. In 2028, an illness radically altered his brain, freeing him from the thinking patterns of normal people at enormous cost: David has no memory of the first decade and a half of his life.
Twenty years later he has a thriving career in the new field of perceptual engineering. Armed with journals his teen-aged self wrote when the disease was first diagnosed, he has forged a life with his loving wife and children. Then a new treatment gives David a chance to remember the idyllic childhood family he has only read about.
He doesn’t know his journals are fiction. He doesn’t know the boy who wrote them was a psychopath.
