"Kill them with cleverness," my mother never said. At least Henry remembers something correctly. What else does he know for sure? Well: that he was destined for failure in Los Angeles, that New York has become a ghost town of the worst kind–a lively ghost town–since he returned, and that he may have only ever been truly happy when he lived in Paris. Once there, everything comes back to him, with the exception of his French, which was never great to begin with, but his memories come through just fine. Or so he thinks. As he tries to pick up where he left off five years before, Henry discovers that the world has moved on, but it has not forgotten. What does he know for sure? Well: that he can't be any more sure about the past than he is about the future.
