The desert has overtaken Los Angeles and buried its freeways, and a strange darkness has flooded Europe and set its streets on fire-and a young woman's face, a misbegotten childhood in a Parisian brothel, and the fragment of a lost movie masterpiece are the only clues in a man's search for his past.
