A man pieces together clues to his pastвЂ”and the identity of his captorsвЂ”in this fantastic, labyrinthine novel
An old man awakens, disoriented, in an unfamiliar chamber. With no memory of who he is or how he has arrived there, he pores over the relics on the desk, examining the circumstances of his confinement and searching his own hazy mind for clues.
Determining that he is locked in, the manвЂ”identified only as Mr. BlankвЂ”begins reading a manuscript he finds on the desk, the story of another prisoner, set in an alternate world the man doesnвЂ™t recognize. Nevertheless, the pages seem to have been left for him, along with a haunting set of photographs. As the day passes, various characters call on the man in his cellвЂ”vaguely familiar people, some who seem to resent him for crimes he canвЂ™t rememberвЂ”and each brings frustrating hints of his identity and his past. All the while an overhead camera clicks and clicks, recording his movements, and a microphone records every sound in the room. Someone is watching.
