General Note: Series numeration from
Originally published in Great Britain by Viking Press, an imprint of Penguin Books Ltd., London"--T.p. verso.
Summary, etc.: Is there any difference between memory and invention? That is the question that haunts Alexander Cleave as he plumbs the memories of his first, and perhaps only, love and of his daughter, lost to a kind of madness that Cleave can't understand. When his acting career is suddenly revived with a movie role portraying a man who may not be who he says he is, his young leading lady gives him the opportunity to see with clarity the chasm that yawns between doing something and the recollection of what was done.
