After a thirty-something altruistic punk rocker fleeing a troubled marriage is hired for a grant-writing job at a southern California psychiatric hospital, he quickly gets entangled in a neuropsychiatrist's mysterious research into the collective unconscious, and becomes romantically involved with a former patient. A metaphysical thriller peopled with memorable characters set in a picturesque town along the Pacific coast, Carswell gives readers a wild ride into the unknown... and back again.
