Summary
In 1980, a utopian Buddhist community on the coast of Maine is on the verge of collapse. A eleven-year-old boy takes refuge in his imagination, and to distract his parents and himself from their collective troubles, the boy claims to remember his own life before birth--an epic tale about the search for a lost city refracted through the lens of the adventure stories he loves to read. As the world around them falls apart, the boy and his parents find that his strange story often seems to predict the events taking place in the world around them
