SHATTERED WORLD. SHATTERED MIND. The world is a gritty, dystopian remnant of its former self. Solo, an outcast and survivor with no past, struggles to find peace as he copes with the ravages of desolation and his shattered mind. Haunted by fleeting memories of a life from the "Before," he embarks on a quest for discovery with his only friend, Tom, a gruff, no-nonsense survivalist with a penchant for spitting out folksy one-liners. "Life is like licking honey off a thorn." Solo finds the "After" to be inexplicably surreal. Reality, a vestige of what once was, overshadows Solo's ability to find himself and the only woman he can remember, Eye Lyds. "The end ... has it come?" Unsure, Solo seeks answers amidst a quagmire of latent thoughts and images, sending him on a journey to his past: a woman, a hospital, danger ... and truth. "The truth? Why, when a lie would do so nicely? " Venture into the mind of a man lost to his own consciousness, where dreams are reality, and reality is in the eye of the beholder. From the best-selling, award-winning author of "Nine Meals" and "The 17" comes a story of unconditional love, survival and an unrelenting war against mental illness. Memories, filtered through a glass, seen darkly...will they destroy the man he's become or save the shadow he used to be? "Vows made in storms are forgotten in calms."
