Tony Fellows, the narrator, is a sixty-year-old man who is prompted by a personal crisis to leave the city and seek temporary refuge in a rented room in Sag Harbor, where he hopes to reinvent himself. He achieves his goal in an entirely unexpected way, as he is set on a psychic and spiritual adventure by his new landlady, who gives him the tools to unlock his imagination, enter his own dreams, and explore that “fuzzy boundary.”|
As the story progresses, he becomes increasingly entangled with the spirits who inhabit Jung's collective unconscious, including a Celtic god named Lugh. By the end he is able to commune with his ancestors and contemplate, without fear, what it will be like to rejoin them.
