After an accident he doesn't remember involving 'something falling out of the sky' the unnamed narrator of the novel loses his memory and must relearn how to use his damaged body. However he has received millions in recompensation from the courts, and he uses the money to buy an apartment building in which he begins to re-enact, with the help of hired actors, various scenes from his fantasies, ranging from the mundane to the murderous. Debut novelist Tom McCarthy writes with an eerie ambiguity, and the increasingly detached mind of his protagonist is both compelling and chilling.
